I have 2 T1's that are multilink linked.I am having some input errors and want to see if it is a hardware or link issue. I have read about putting the interface into a loopback state and running some ping test to check CSU\DSU but not sure how to do this with a multilink, The routers I have are Cisco 3640 on both ends with 12.4 IOS.

Follow the links in the flowchart.
Also other good llinks at the bottom of that one.

When running the test do I just use the multilink interface or each serial int?

Also I do not have a controller T1 0. I have 2 serial 2 fast eth. The 2 serial are grouped to the multilink.
