Re: High Error Rate

[re: faz1964] [link to this post]
Errors aren't good (esp. the error seconds) - but as your router has been up for 11 days it's tricky so say if you've a line problem or not.

It only takes one strange event (storm / BT engineer / dodgy electrical kit / etc) to rack up large numbers of errors.

I would start be rebooting your router and monitoring from a fresh start to try to see what's going on.
