    I am seeing 18,287,371,624 Error Packets after 1-2hrs! The diagnosis and endpoints are not seeing the packets - I assume they are dropped. It only happens on my wireless and 2nd test machine only showed 1700 CRC errors. Where should I be looking?

    Firstly, wireless NIC is supported by capsa. It may works sometimes, but we don't guarantee anything for this.

    Because wireless is based on exposured media -- radio -- which is very easy to be corrupted and invalidated, the CRC error is not that abnormal as it is in the Ethernet. They CRC are mostly caused by interference from other signal source in the same frequency.
    The number of CRC errors is directly related to the traffic amout and duration.

    You should check if there are APs overlaped with your frequency in the same space.
