Is reorder frame a concern in ppp multilnk connection? See output below, there are "5422515 reordered" which keeps incrementing every second, and there is a delay in connectivity. Just wondering if reorder is the cause, and what the reorder is?

I've been working a little bit with the PPP multilink concept. What I have found is that the 'reordered' message means exactly what it says: The router has reordered some frames. When you run multilink PPP, the ethernet frame get's choped up into two, or more, eaquel size PPP packets. These frames are then sent out on the PPP multilink. Each PPP packet is maked with a sequence number, so the recieveing end knows how to reassemble the ethernet frame form the PPP packets.
Let's say that the first PPP packet travels out on S1/0 and the second travels out on S1/1. If the second packet arrives on the other router first, the router has to wait(buffer) until the first packet arrives. This is called reordering. I guess, if you have a huge delay on the line, one of the lines has a higher delay than the other one, and because of this the router has to wait for the other packet to arrive before it can recreate the ethernet frame.
