A lot of Connection Errors

  AdventCalendar 15:14 08 Jun 2003

if i click onto the newtwork connections icon on my toolbar, it allows me to see the status of my connection.

The connection speeds, the time connected, and bytes sent and recieved....do you know what i mean?

well, on my connection the error counter clocks up very very quickly. Ive checked this on my friends and they dont seem to have any. In 30 minutes, i had 2554 errors, and yesterday on my mates, they had 3!!!....why is this? and is it important?

please help

Well less errors the faster your connection, check your modem is correctly fitted and has the correct settings.

I had this problem once when I incorrectly steup my modem.

On dial up connections these two green TV sets when you click on status, shows the connection speed at that particular time. The higher the better. With NTL dial up I used to regularly achieve 50000 bps, occasionally this would drop to 48000. On broadband these two icons do not appear. If you are achieving in the region of 30000 or so, this is a very slow connection. Hope this explains it.

My memory is a little rusty as I have been on broadband for some time now. The number of bytes received is alway higher that the bytes sent. If I remember correctly the actual connection speed is shown by just holding the pointer over the icons. No doubt someone will correct me if my memory is faulty.
