    Hello lovely people of Gigabyte.

    I have the above motherboard, and recently changed from a pair of 85mbps powerline adapters to a 500mbps pair.

    All is fine, and I get great speeds across them even through 2 extension leads.

    However, the Ethernet port on the motherboard now glows orange.

    with my 85mbps ones, it glowed green.

    surely, green is good, right? from what I can see from googling, green is ethernet running at 1gigabit, and orange is either 10 or 100mbps.

    can you clarify this for me?

    UPDATE: yeah, so my Ethernet port has stopped working entirely, and I cant see it in device manager. please help!
