AFAIK the input errors you are receiving is the sum of runts, CRC errors and that kind of errors.In your case these are only CRC errors are present.

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 check the duplex setting @ other end?

  • Cisco Employee,

147 input errors, 147 CRC,

This is whats causing the issue and there are 2 things you need to do.

1. Make sure both the speed and Duplex setting on both ends are the same. Either hardcoded or set to auto (negotiating to the same values)

You can check the speed and duplex setting by looking under sh interface int fa 0/20

2.Change the cable.

Just wanted to clarify,

1>either have both sides hardcoded

2>Have both sides set to auto.
