I have one PC that has a solid amber led light on the NIC where it should be green. The PC can access the internet fine but can't ping a specific host on our network. The host she can't ping CAN ping the PC with the amber led. Any ideas on what could cause this?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
If you have an amber light and a yello light on the nic, completely powerdown the comp, remove power plug, hold the power button for a few seconds to drain the comp of power, reattach cord and power up. The reserve power in the comp is keeping he nic from "resetting" and recheck your nic settings then.
