Network fails through one port going orange

The ASUS site has a quick start guide (I read Version 3) that says the lights show blue for connections and blink blue for activity. Sometimes orange indicates a connection at a lower speed. What happens when you try a spare port? What is connected to the 'orange' port? What do the lights at the other end of the suspect patch cable indicate? Note that the manual isn't great because the titles say Gigabit Ethernet but the text talks about 10/100 but not 1000 megabit ethernet.

This is a layer 2 device and it ain't exactly the cleverest box on the LAN. If you move devices to other ports, it is supposed to figure that out dynamically. You should be able to eliminate devices one at a time to determine which port or device is defective. Start by eliminating the 'orange' device. If the router is disconnected can you still print?

If you have limited functionality with the suspect device disconnected, the problem could be with that device. Sometimes cables can be a problem. Not likely but it is necessary to check by substituting a known good cable on a link. If the problem goes away, it was the cable.

Remember to photograph the initial configuration with your smartphone. That can help you when you forget where you started. Label the wires with masking tape if there are no other labels, so you can find your way back to the starting point.

The Ethernet port of my Asus M4a77td motherboard stopped working. I think it is a hardware problem because when I plug the router cable on the port, the corresponding light on the router does not turn on...

Yeah, the link light on the router should be coming on.
A few simple things to try:
Try a different network cable. Try a different port on the router. Visually inspect the port on the system and router to confirm they are not physically damaged in any way.

Connecting inteface with computer- lan port

The LAN (or Network port) is located on the back of the motherboard. When you connect the cable from the AR 161 to the motherboard, the lights will start to flash - Green = Stable and Orrange = data flashing.

2 Lan ports not picking up cables

Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the LAN cards. You can also try to remove it from the motherboard, change PCI slots then reload the driver.
