RJ-45 Network Port LEDs and Uplink Port LEDs in EX2300 Switches

Each RJ-45 network port and uplink port on the front panel of an EX2300 switch has two LEDs that indicate link/activity and port status. See Figure 12, Figure 13, and Figure 14.

Table 6 describes the Link/Activity LED.

Color

State and Description

Link/Activity

Green

  • Blinking—The port and the link are active, and there is link activity.
  • On steadily—The port and the link are active, but there is no link activity.
  • Off—The port is not active.

Figure 15 shows the LEDs that indicate the status of one of the four port parameters—speed, duplex mode, administrative status, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) status. Use the Factory Reset/Mode button on the far right side of the front panel to toggle the Status LED to show the different port parameters for RJ-45 network ports. You can tell which port parameter is indicated by the Status LED by looking at which port status mode LED (SPD, DX, EN, and PoE) is lit. The LED labeled PoE is not available on switch models with RJ-45 network ports that do not provide PoE.

Port Parameters

State and Description

Speed (SPD)

Indicates the speed. The speed indicators are:

  • Unlit—10 Mbps
  • Blinking—100 Mbps
  • On steadily—1000 Mbps

Duplex mode (DX)

Indicates the duplex mode. The status indicators are:

  • Green—Port is set to full-duplex mode.
  • Unlit—Port is set to half-duplex mode.

Administrative status (EN)

Indicates the administrative status. The status indicators are:

  • Green—Port is administratively enabled.
  • Unlit—Port is administratively disabled.

PoE status (PoE)

Indicates the PoE status. The status indicators are:

  • On steadily—PoE is enabled on the port and a device is drawing power.
  • Blinking—PoE is enabled on the port, but no power is drawn from the port.
  • Unlit—PoE is not enabled on the port.

Note: The PoE Status LED is available on the following EX2300 switch models:

  • EX2300-C-12P
  • EX2300-24P
  • EX2300-48P

The uplink ports operate in full-duplex mode and PoE is not applicable on uplink ports. The Status LED on uplink ports indicate the Speed (SPD) and Administrative status (EN). Table 8 describes the Status LED on the uplink ports.

LED

State and Description

Status LED

Indicates the speed and administrative status. The indicators are:

  • On steadily—10 Gbps
  • Blinking—1 Gbps
  • Unlit—The port is administratively disabled or the link is down.

You can tell which port parameter is indicated by the Status LED on RJ-45 network ports and uplink ports by issuing the operational mode command show chassis led.
