I'm trying to set up a small Ethernet network at home. Basically I have two rooms wired to a router through CAT5E cables. After putting on the R45 jacks all I got is orange light blinking next to the network card.
Though I double checked the cables and it seems that I got the order of the colors right, I'm not an IT specialist and I may miss something.
Is it possible to debug what goes wrong using software tools? I have linux laptops at hand.
