Transmits aborted (excessive collisions)

This error occurs if there are excessive collisions on the network. The network card gives up on transmitting the frame after 16 collisions. This generally means that the network is jammed and is too busy.

Note: Routers also give up on transmitting a frame if they experience excessive collisions, but instead of alerting the original transmitter, routers simply discard the frame.

If these sort of errors are being experienced, see if the network can be reduced, or introduce a strategically placed switch into the network to help eliminate the number of packets that are being placed on the entire network. Switching to a full-duplex network also resolves these problems.
