I have the TG862G/CT Arris router with the 4 ethernet ports on the back.
I have my Mac computer plugged into one of them and it shows a solid green light below the plug and a flashing yellow light above it.
In the next port I have my Tivo plugged in and it has a flashing yellow light just like the other port but instead of the green light, it has a solid orange light.
Does anyone know just what lights should be lit and what they mean.

Thanks EG, that sounds like it could be right. I had a TP Link extender plugged into it and took it out to run a temporary 100 ft. ethernet cable to see if it made any difference. It didn't but the cable I used was one that I made up many years ago and is probably not a Cat5 cable.
Thanks for the help.
