      Collision Pkts?

      Hi there.

      I was wondering if anyone can tell me why my Pkts so high on WLAN?

      I'm on wireless channel 12 at present. My last reboot I went through some different channels and Pkts were going up still.

      My present settings:

      System Up Time: 459:15:00
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collision Pkts Tx b/s Rx b/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 674082734 713032858 0 195 283 459:14:03

      Will this affect gaming latency etc?

      As collisions cause errors and so the data has to be retransmitted, I would say it will definitely effect the latency. How many are connecting to the router with wireless?

      Re: Collision Pkts?

      The most devices running at once on wireless would be an xbox360, iPhone, laptop and xbox one. When I'm gaming however I usually turn off other devices. If I check my router settings on my iPhone the collision pkts are showing still. Is it possibly my iPhone causing the problem?

      Re: Collision Pkts?

      I've not replied for a while but I'm still getting collision pkts. Even when I'm using one device, it still creeps up eventually. My older router the Fast2504n never had collision pkts, it was always at 0.

      If anybody can shine some light on this, it would be greatly appreciated ?

      I'm currently around 700 at the moment. Thank you.

      Re: Collision Pkts?

      The collisions are being corrected and I would not worry too much about them.

      There are a variety of things which can cause them, as discussed in the link which seawright provided.

      Basically if you have a lot of neighbours using the same channel or if their router/s are overlapping your router's channel, then you can get clashes when both you and they are using the WiFi at the same time.

      Another issue would be if you were using a variety of devices at the same time over the WiFi.

      Signal strength/router location can also affect things. Your router should be placed in a position to provide you with a good signal, but it should also be in a position away from interference.

      Also there are other devices which share the same frequencies that are used by WiFi routers. Examples include baby alarms & DECT phones, but this is not an exhaustive list. Tools such as inSSIDer can help to identify neighbouring WiFi routers, but they will not show these other devices nor will show how much traffic is present.

      Re: Collision Pkts?

      Thanks for the reply. It probably could be a neighbouring router causing the interference. There is normally around 8 different gateways showing on the connection list. I'll keep changing the channels to see if I get any joy. When I was using the sagem fast2504n it never used to show collision pkts. Might test it and see what happens.

      Since I've been using the Netgear DGND3700, I'm not receiving any more collision pkts. Happy Days.

      Good.

      I trust that you have the DGND3700v2. It is an improvement upon the v1 and has the Netgear Genie firmware, but there are known issues with both routers.

      Don't use the USB ports for sharing files.
