    Amber light indicates a 10/100 Mbps connection. Green light means 1000 Mbps connection.

    No, they should negotiate at 1000BASE-TX. Replace the cable, maybe it's of bad quality (I had such cables, too). If with proper cable it works, consider setting fix speed/full duplex mode for this connection - it will have advantage over auto-negotiation.

    What i did notice is that when desktops are turned off they fallback to 100mbits or even 10mbits mode just to receive wol packets and that's probably what's happening, otherwise check cableing. That or the client doesn't support 1000mbit
