netstat -e: high discards and errors

By | February 15, 2018

I think my network is congested because of the relatively large discards and errors data. They should be zero or at least close to that.

Here is the output of netstat -e on my computer:

Here is my setup:

ISP > Modem/Router > Computer

I think I should just mention that our connection is dsl and we signed a bundled package – telephone + internet. The data is then filtered and goes through a splitter. I am not sure
if that contributes to the problem, though, but every time someone uses the telephone the connection gets disrupted very often. Our connection is very unstable, too. Specially when it is raining.
