Error Packets showing up


[link to this post]
 
Just gone live today with Fibre, having not had broadband for a number of years on the phone line.

Have a TP-Link VC900 router and the stats it is giving me are:


DSL Modulation Type: VDSL2
Annex Type: Annex A/L/M

Upstream / Downstream

Current Rate: 18590kbps / 44716kbps
Max Rate: 18590kbps / 45412kbps
SNR Margin: 6.3 / 6.1
Line Attenuation(db): 0 / 20.4
Errors(pkts) 44 / 4217

The line has been in sync for about 90 minutes, currently downloading a 7gb file which is obviously sending the error packets up quicker than prior to the download.

Can I have some thoughts on what these mean and if the connection is good or if I have some problems I need to iron out somewhere.

Thanks

Paul

Errors can and do happen. What's important is whether or not they're corrected.

Are they causing any issues with your download speed? If not I wouldn't be concerned.

Does not seem to be a problem, but it is now over 61000, so about 55000 added in the past hour and just normal internet usage taking place.

Just a couple of minutes after posting this, the connection dropped and reconnected reseting the errors to 0.
