I have a 6i5SYH and I would like to know how to turn off the ethernet diode when the NUC is stopped.
I can not find anything in the BIOS.
Besides, is there a BIOS manual in pdf on the Intel site?
Thanks for your help.
1. The Bios Settings Glossary you may download here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006028/mini-pcs.html BIOS Settings Glossary for Intel® NUC
2. In my NUC6i5SYH, both LED on the Ethernet socket are OFF while my NUC is OFF. My Ethernet cable is connected trough Ethernet Switch and Network Boot is disabled in Bios settings.
3. When my NUC is in standby mode (sleep mode), the green Ethernet LED is blinking, so, the LED in front panel is blinking in amber color.
4. What you mean "when the NUC is stopped"? The NUC is in OFF state (S5) or Sleeping state (S3)?
I repeat one last time: the computer is stopped
However, I just did a test. When I disconnect the ethernet cable: the diode is off.
The cable is connected to a SWITCH Netgear ...
Yea, seriously. Respect is something that is earned and you haven't yet done so. We don't know you. We don't know your competencies. Don't take it personally; we have to use this starting point with everybody.
Power off the NUC and disconnect its power brick. Unplug everything you have plugged to the NUC (monitor, keyboard, mouse, everything). Reconnect only the LAN cable. Next, plug the power brick back into the NUC but do not power on. What are the Ethernet LEDs doing now?
Try this: when your computer is OFF, disconnect the Power Adapter cable. Wait 10 minutes. Reconnect the Power Adapter cable. Check now if the LED is still ON.
The green LED indicates traffic levels on the cable. It takes a *very* busy network for the Traffic LED to be on solid and you should never see this sustained for any long period. It is also not supposed to be on without the other (Connection) LED on the connector also being on. This feels like a short somewhere. There are a number of possibilities:
I have ordered these based upon the simplicity for testing. Trying with an alternate cable is pretty straight forward. Virtually any (CAT 5/5e/6) cable can be used. At the Router, there is the possibility of a problem with an individual port, but testing for that is pretty simple: move the NUC's cable to another (free) port or, if all ports in use, swap ports with another cable.
Hope this helps,
This is a simple, unmanaged switch, not a router. It could be affected by whatever router you have downstream of it (and which connects you to the internet).
