Does your router support 64bit counters? I believe they are

this sounds like the interface is doing a lot of traffic and therefor  
overflowing the maximum 32-bit value of a normal SNMP Counter. It  
depends what collector you are using how you would overcome this so  
check the docs for your collector.
