Acceptable Errors?

Hopeing someone with a little more experience with linux routers/firewalls can answer this for me.

I have been running a smoothwall box for the past while now and am curious.. what is an acceptable amount or errors for a connection. For example, i get the following:

RX packets:1697648errors:119dropped:0overruns:0 frame:119
TX packets:1616212errors:4598dropped:0overruns:0 carrier:4598

This is on a DSL connection, after transfering some files, is this an acceptable amount of errors, or should i maybe look at replacing this nic?

Updated.. i just let the firewall run all night and this is what it is sitting at now.

RX packets:5080803 errors:417 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:417
TX packets:5266382 errors:21113 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:21113
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100

now that seems like a lot of errors to me.. still i would like to know whether this is acceptable or not before I invest in another NIC.

Look at my internal NIC,,
RX packets:5292358 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:5080489 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100

Now why does the other one have all these errors, is it just because it is the external NIC or what??
