Cisco 2610 - Collision and deferreds - Need input!

I am really lagging on my T1.  I have cleared the counters, no errors.  I have checked the proc, a wopping 3%.  What I have found is listed below.  What is a likely cause of the collisions and deferred?

Thanks,

  Last clearing of "show interface" counters 00:20:48
  Input queue: 0/75/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0
  Queueing strategy: fifo
  Output queue: 0/40 (size/max)
  5 minute input rate 192000 bits/sec, 39 packets/sec
  5 minute output rate 148000 bits/sec, 26 packets/sec
     44782 packets input, 14893789 bytes, 0 no buffer
     Received 602 broadcasts, 0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles
     0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored
     0 input packets with dribble condition detected
     44926 packets output, 39005265 bytes, 0 underruns
     0 output errors, 284 collisions, 0 interface resets
     0 babbles, 0 late collision, 342 deferred
     0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier
     0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

Collisions cause defered packets.
Collisions are an integral part of Ethernet on a hub, or shared medium.
If you are connected to a switch, it is caused by a duplex mismatch between the router interface and the switchport. Older IOS on a 2610 means you get 10M half-duplex only. Upgrade the IOS and you can get 10Mb full-duplex capability. That will remove the collisions.

I have a fairly recent IOS.  It is set to 1/2 duplex.  What commands would I do to set it to full duplex?

Go to interface configuration mode

Router#config t
Router(config)# int fa0/0
Router(config-if)# duplex full
Router(config-if)#end

We are talking about an ethernet interface, right?

2610 does not have 'fa' interfaces

C2610_10.2.2(config)#int eth 0/0
C2610_10.2.2(config-if)#duplex full
C2610_10.2.2(config-if)#^Z
C2610_10.2.2#

Worked, now I get no collisions, but I do get input, frame and crc errors.  Can't be related can it?

Now you have to make sure that your switchport is also set manually to 10/full-duplex
Also, try replacing the patch cable between the router and the switch..
CRC errors tend to show up with physical (cable) problems..

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

I replace the cable, and changed out the switch that it connects to.  The frame errors are gone, but the CRC continue to live.  Thoughts?

Is the switchport also manually set to full-duplex, or is it set to auto?

One was manually, one was auto.

Did you clear counters after switching?
Clear counters now.
Be sure that you are connecting to the one set manually, NOT auto.
See if the counters increase.

Clear counters again, then connect to the Autodetect switch.
See if the counters increase.
