The workstation I was looking at didn’t have any issues per se. It seemed a little hesitant when browsing the internet, but besides that I couldn’t see anything wrong. But the errors I saw above told me there was an issue.
Turned out it was incorrect cabling. I corrected it and the errors all went away.
