I just did a LAN-link LED activity indicator mod and it works, it blinks whenever there is LAN activity going on but the thing is, it never goes out completely. When there is no activity, it stays lit but it is very dim.
I doubt it is supposed to be like that but I checked all my connections and solder points so maybe it is...? I'm using a 5v going to the anode (+) of the LED source (ties into the same source as the HDD molex power connector but on the underside of the mo'bo where the PSU snaps on). The (-) is going though a 100 ohm resistor then to the solder point for LAN activity seen here>>>
no LAN activity
STILL ON! but very dim.
the red light is the HDD activity light. It shares a power source with the LAN led but they blink separately.
edit- i just noticed there is a faint static-like noise that occurs whenever the LAN led is fully lit.
hmm...yep, must have screwed something up. I'll look into this more later
