The counters that you are using are 32 bit counters that will roll over, and what you see there is a result of the counter rolling over

Re: Negative output on frames Tx & Rx

Just a followup... if it is a 32bit counter is it exactly 2^32 or 4,294,967,296 in dec. or should this be rounded off to the nearest???
