In/out errors…



  • Hello there. I have recently seen that my in/out errors under interfaces for my WAN interface is in the thousands. What does this mean? i read somewhere that i could be due to a failing nic, but i am not sure.

    Any help is appreciated :)

    It could be a failing NIC but it could also be a bad cable, a bas switch, bad modem, loose connection or just some local source high electrical noise.
    Does it show errors in both directions? What is the error rate? What's the total packets count compared to the bad packets?

  • And this is only after about 2 days uptime. But i have tried with different cables with same results. And this only happens on the WAN interface not Lan.

    Hmm, yes too many errors to ignore if was me.
    Do you have a switch you can put in between the WAN NIC and your modem?
