Errors in Alteon 180e

I've noticed errors on my Alteon 180e as listed below:

mac_rx_err:
CRC 115971 Collided 0
LinkErr 0 PhyErr 0
Nibble 58331 Abort 0
Runt 0 NoBuffer 0
Over32k 0 Over16k 0
Over9k 0

Ethernet statistics for port 1:
dot3StatsAlignmentErrors: 58331
dot3StatsFCSErrors: 115971
dot3StatsSingleCollisionFrames: 0

Any recommendations on how to go about fixing this? I'm running the
OS 10.0.3 and I did notice that port 1 is set to pref gig although
we're not running a gigabit network (would this cause the errors?).
Any thoughts? I can provide whatever other information is necessary.

This classically points to a duplex mismatch. Either set both ends of
the link to autonegotiate, or fix both ends' speed and duplex. If
both ends are already set to autonegotiate, try fixing both ends
speed/duplex.
