Why the yellow LED on lan port is steady on without connection?

Hello everyone,

I have a motherboard MI970 which has two ethernet port, one Intel 82579LM and one 82583V.

The 82583V port was connected to a raspberry Pi. I have noticed that the connection was disconnected and a yellow LED on it is steady on, it doesn't matter if a cable is connected or not.

After I have noticed this issue, I have checked the device manager and the driver under Network Adapter was with a yellow exclamation mark, so I have tried to unistall and reinstall it but disappeared totally. I have checked under hidden devices, and wasn't there.

Also, I have tried restart the system and turned it off for a while. Nothing changed. Since the system is on the LED of the port is ON and is not working.

Also, I have tried to install the driver manually but it didn't allow me to install.

Is there any solution for this issue?

Also, if I cannot use the port and is knocked, can the motherboard be used? I meant it cannot cause any more issues on other parts?

I would appreciate if you could give me some advice.

Thanks in advance,
