Ok guys I need some help here. I have a HP comuter that seem to be acting strangely. There is a light that comes on at the connection where the ethernet cord is plugged into the back of the computer. I found recently that even if the cord is not plugged into that connection the light is still on. Is that normal? It never really happened before. I cannot access the internet. Secondly sometimes when I check the status it shows that I am receiving packets but 0 is sent. All other computers connected to the Hub is working OK. any help here will be greatly appreciated.

No the light should be out when no cable is plugged in, orange when plugged in, and green when transmitting/receiving. (only if the port is on the motherboard)

disable the net card after you have added an add in card and verify that the new card works.
