Re: Amber led

As long as it works, no problem. Check the spec's on the DVR for its Ethernet speed and if it is 1GB, change the cable connecting it. However, 100Mbps is usually more than enough for video.

Re: Amber led

Amber on a port LED if Amber means there is a 100Mbps connection. Either dictated by the device or cable used.

 

Same information that is in the R7000 manual.

Thats correct.  The routers ethernet ports support 10/100/1000 Mbps.  If you connect a gigabit device that negotiates connection at full speed, the port LED will be white.  If you connect a device whose speed is lower (say 10/100) the port LED will display amber as @IrvSp mentioned.

 

@IrvSp, sorry for posting over your answer.
