1721 router dropping ethernet interface

my 1721 router is displaying the following message at regular intervals: PQUICC_ETHER-1-LOSTCARR: Unit 0, lost carrier. Transceiver problem?

loading of the ios is also very slow. any clues of of what is causing the problem?

thanks.

Re: 1721 router dropping ethernet interface

Sounds physical.

Most often, "Lost carrier" indicates a physical problem. Check your cabling - replace the drop cable, try another switch/hub port, test with a cross-over cable directly to a NIC if you can.

Also, be sure to lock your interface speed and Full-Duplex/Half-Duplex settings. "Auto negotiation" too often is neither.

Re: 1721 router dropping ethernet interface

the problem is occuring even when nothing is connected on the ethernet port.
