Easy Cisco Question, Cisco Noob

Have 2 routers Cisco 2821

Site A  serial0/0/0:1 10.52.1.1

Site B serial? T1 as well 10.52.1.4

ISP is pointing that the current extremely degraded bandwidth could be caused by our T1 cards.  We have packet loss 6-7%



Please give Very simple commands, steps, ext and explain well.

I want to check to see if there are any errors in the cisco concerning the T1 cards... I'm a Windows Administrator, I really do not no much about the router.  I count it great that I can telnet into it even.

Thanks in advance!

Advise on if these actually indicate an issue with the card?

or router?

Hard to say if it's the card or not, but I would be talking to your provider about this end of the circuit. Something is causing these problems.

We swapped the card on the 10.52.1.1 side and same errors.

I'm having to say I'm doubtful but still wanted to ask this question.  Could a bad T1 on the 10.52.1.4 side cause errors like this on the 10.52.1.1 side?

Checking with the provider and they will be troubleshooting tomorrow.  There is certainly a good bit of equipment between the 2.

Any other suggestions or step by step tests would be very welcome.

Anything is possible, but unlikely.  I can't think of a way that a problem on one end would cause carrier transitions on the other.

I'd wait and see what the carrier has to say.
