    Any one have any insight as to what the current requirements are for the LEDs on an Ethernet connector? Judging from that datasheets I have read, apparently, you are supposed to just know. Problem is, I don't know. Anyone know what the industry standard is?

    Usually you use something between 5 and 20mA, as 20mA is usually the maximum current.
