I am trying to make a ethernet terminal I/O board. Basically making an x8 based 1U solution. I am trying to route the onboard ethernet connection vi a patch cable (Cat6). this works but I also want the link/status leds.
I did a simple PCB with two modular 8P8C Jacks with LEDs and hav connected them back-to-back. The inside Jack connects to my mobo with patch cable and the outer Jack connects to a switch on LAN. I need to no also drive the Link/Status LEDs...
Oh and one more thing i missed out, need to support 10/100/1000 Mbps wit bi color LEDs
Any ideas/help is greatly appreciated
