Interleaved Path FEC Correction - 3CRWDR100A-72


I have a 3CRWDR100A-72 with latest firmware release.

I've been having an intermittent connection issue for about a year now.

Under my Status and Logs > ADSL Status > Defect Indication section of the router I'm getting the following:

Interleaved Path FEC Correction - Near end indicator - 1460640

By the end of one working day this number will hit 6 million if not more. It starts rising as soon as the sync light is on with even no internet traffic.

As a test I plugged in the same model of router to the same phone line and it doesnt have the same Defect Indication info, all numbers are zero.

What does it mean? Is my router on it's last legs?
