LS1021A Ethernet Receive Carrier Sense Error Counter counts up!

Hi,

 

I have the LS1021A running on a custom board that is very similiar to the TWR board.

In some situations - I cannot say in which one exactly - I loose some ping packets and I see

ethtool counting rx-carrier-sense-errors.

 

I figured out that this counter counter comes directly from the eTSEC RMON MIB register eTSECx_RCSE.

What does this register really count? Where should I start diggin'

 

Thanks,

Matthias
