This is not a "problem."
Those messages indicate that the networking hardware has detected CRC
and/or framing errors on your network. In other words, it's likely
that either your network wiring is flaky, or some host on your network
has a somewhat broken ethernet interface.
Many/most operating systems and drivers just ingnore those
indications. We present the information.
