    Collisions occur whenever devices transmit at the same time on shared media (coax or hubs). They are expected to happen. So there's really no troubleshooting required.

    Now if you're getting excesive collisions or late collisions, that's a different story.  Or if you're getting collisions in a switched environment.

    Can you be more specific?
