Hi,

I'm getting some packet errors from a linux device ethernet port. I have recrimped the cable but still getting some errors. Any idea how to fix it ?

Generally Packet "ERRORS" Not discards or packet loss. Means, faulty hardware.
Try updating your NIC drive. What Distro and Kernal version are you running?
Also what model is the NIC card?

It could also be errors, from the device you are connecting. Not necessarily your PC..
Switch, router, etc..

I would use a "Premade" cable first to test. Not one you crimped.. See if you still get errors.

Thank you for your response. Linux Kernel is Linux 4.14.16 aarch64 . I'm trying to find the way for displaying NIC Card version. I will try with Premade cable as suggested

Thank you

A few weeks ago, i had some really weird issues, when i was using two NIC cards on my Arch install.
I was having SLOW network speeds like 30/40 network transfers etc.
As soon as i removed my USB to Ethernet adapter.. It started working flawlessly. I still haven't' figured it out yet.

Is the network card that's having issues onboard NIC or a network card you added? It may have bad driver support.
