how to generate transmit/receive errors for SMH page

You know in the SMH page there is a section called controller information for a selected NIC. There are a couple of fields in that section - Good frames, bad frames, aligned errors, etc. I was wondering how to generate transmit / receive errors so that the corresponding statistics in the SMH page can be verified. Is there any networking tool such as ping etc for such purpose?

Re: how to generate transmit/receive errors for SMH page

That would mean injecting (altering or manufacturing) bad TCP/IP packets.

You can use a tool like wireshark to detect them, but I don't know about any tools that can create them for you. More often injection is used to trick systems - not to send bad frames - so you may have to write your own application - or at least modify it.

How about making a 'bad' cable? Maybe you can get some errors then?
