View Full Version : [ubuntu] ppp Lots of RX Packet errors?

September 20th, 2009, 07:56 PM
I've been having some problems with my dial up connection. When i'm downloading things (including webpages), seem to be going along great and then my modem will just stop. If I'm loading a large-ish webpage, it will stop loading and my modem lights stop blinking.

I noticed that in ifconfig, I'm getting a large amount of RX Packet errors.The VERY strange thing, in my opinion, is that if I load ubuntuforums on Firefox, it never successfully loads, and ifconfig shows about ~50 new rx packet errors. When I load the webpage on Opera, the page loads fast, and there are absolutely no rx packet errors. This happens every time.

What's the deal?
