Cisco Intput Errors and CRC's increment

Hello Experts,

Our WAN interface is experiencing a large amount input errors and output errors, see below. Of particular notice is the fact the input errors are identical to the CRCs.

My initial thoughts are the problem is with the service provider. However, because the input errors are identical I'm not sure it the problem is with the provider?

Any help will be appreciated..

Cheers

Carlton

Try

conf t
interface Serial0/0/0:0
clear counters

And then watch how fast CRC errors is growing.

Hi Matt,

I did what you suggested and the CRC's started incrementing straight away :-(

CRC errors
Indicates that the cyclic redundancy checksum generated by the originating LAN station or far-end device does not match the checksum calculated from the data received. On a LAN, this usually indicates noise or transmission problems on the LAN interface or the LAN bus itself. A high number of CRCs is usually the result of collisions or a station transmitting bad data.

Can you post config of this port? Speed, duplex?
