Multilink issues

Unanswered Question

Please help. I keep having issues with my multilink config. The serial interfaces start showing errors and the VoIP sessions are all static. Basically, it is bonding 2 T1's between a central site and remote site.

Central site details:

2811 Router

card type t1 0 3

no network-clock-participate wic 3

!

controller T1 0/3/0

framing esf

Originally had problems with the fair-queue command - and the above details are what finally made everything work. Not sure what is going on now.

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Laurent - thanks for the reply. The service provider was my first thought also, however, this is the third time in two weeks that this has happened. I believe it is a problem with the clocking. Rebooting the routers on both ends of the T1's seems to put things back in sync.
