I’m experiencing a problem that is driving me crazy.
I have a Cisco AS5350 and a 3700 router series used as GK.
On both machines if I run a ‘show interface fastethernet 0/1’ I can see a lot of CRC error and only on the AS5350 also frame error.
I already changed the hub and the cables but the problem persist.
Hope someone could give me some hints.
Thanks a lot…5th October 2006 at 20:27 #31134Alex ZGuest
Please post the FULL output from “show interface fast0/1”.
Most ethernet problems arise from bad cabling or duplex mismatch.

Hi Alex, thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunatly I can open your links. In any case I changed the duplex to half and now the CRC error are decreased by 95% but instead collision have started to rise 🙁

Collisions are normal events in shared Ethernet environment. You will virtually always see them in Half-Duplex ethernet operation.
It seems that your hub does not support full-duplex (and if it did, it would be switch then). If error counters do not increase anymore, just collisions, then you are fine.
If your collision rate rises above 10-20%, think about replacing the hub with a full-duplex switch.12th October 2006 at 11:11 #31137MannyGuest
Thank you very much for the reply.
I will plan to buy a switch.
