Intermittant connection problems between router and switch.
I have a connection between a switch and a router that seems to just randomly go bad. When I ping the switch from the router is drops about half of the pings. I tried moving the ethernet cable from the current port on the switch to a different and it work just fine. So I was thinking maybe the port was just bad, but after I moved the cable back to the original switch port everything was working again. Then for the next several days everything way fine. Today once again the connection went bad. I reloaded the switch and the conenction was still dropping about half of the pings. Then I reloaded the router and everything was fine again. Now I know its not going to start acting up again for a few days at least as this has been going on for a bit now. Originally I though maybe something was wrong with the switch but no I'm thinking it may be the router.
Is there anything I can do to maybe force the connection to go bad again?
Is there anyway I can generate traffic to see which interface might be taking errors when the connection is acting up?
Any suggestions would be great as I've only been doing this for a little over a month and am trying to learn as much as i can.
