Turn off the Ethernet protocol preference "Assume packets have FCS". Either through the preferences dialog or by right clicking the Ethernet part of the frame in the packet details pane following the Protcol Preferences link on the menu.

Thanks for your replay. I want to understand meaning of this message. Is send and received is activity is successful or partially completed ? Thanks

Turning off the protocol preference allows the Modbus dissection to proceed and all the requests and responses looked good to me.

Did you try it, and if so did you see any issues?
