Anyone know anything about broadband connection stats please?

    Was looking at my connection stats as been having problems with disconnections over the past 5 evenings, but noticed the CRC error figure seems ridiculously high.

    It's always been high, even when I had no problems with the connection, but it's shot up so was wondering what it actually means and if there's anything I can do to fix it?

    It appears that your computer is sending out a lot of bad MAC frames. Its unlikely to be the cause of your disconnections, unless its sending a lot out at once, in a DOS style.

    It might be worth posting on…4.0 (Someone recommended it, I can't remember where though :()

    I didn't think that it would be the cause of the disconnections, but I was just curious what was causing it and whether I could do anything about it. Looking on my internet providers forum, there are a lot of complaints there about lines dropping out, so looks like I'm not the only one having the problem which is strangely reassuring

    Thanks, I'll try that tomorrow during the day when my connection is stable again :thumbsup:
