WHR-HP-G54 Packet Traffic Information questions...
« on: October 24, 2009, 02:43:27 pm »



I have some questions regarding the statistics displayed in the Packet Info Diagnostics tool.  Currently I have 3 repeaters enabled through WDS to forward traffic back to the router.  This is the packet information displayed after a recent reset:


Interface                                                   Sent                         Received
                                                  Normal       Errors       Normal       Errors
Wired LAN                                6255              0                 3138           0
Wired WAN                          152265             0               100242         0
Wireless LAN (802.11g)        2339             0                    0             841
WDS[1]                                      1679             0                   667           0
WDS[2]                                      3950             0                 3058           0
WDS[3]                                    93705             0            144075           0


Should I be concerned that there are no normal received packets on the wireless LAN and only errors?  What could be causing this?  Prior to the reset, the ratio of normal received packets to errors was about 2:1 which seemed like a very high number of errors and prompted the restart.   For sent packets, the ratio was negligible (around 100000 sent normal to 50 errors).


Also, are the repeaters affected by these errors or are their stats being tracked separately on their respective lines (WDS[1], WDS[2], WDS[3])?
