Where does it say what colour the LED is meant to be? The colour can vary from network card to network card. In general, you just need to look for a lit and/or flashing LED. It's possible for an LED to be used to give a warning, but if that is the case, it should say so in the documentation. I think you'll find that this NIC just happens to have a red (is it actually orange) LED.
