    Both ethernet leds constantly on.


    On my HP laptop both ethernet LEDs are constantly on and ethernet doesn't work, I don't care if ethernet doesn't work (I only use wifi) I just want the lights off, is there a way to disable it?

    Thanks in advance

    Try disabling the Ethernet adapter in Network devices. The lights may be dual purpose (wifi & ethernet), so they may never go out.
