Hi there,

If you do "show version", does the router list "2 Serial(sync/async) interfaces"?

Have you tried the WIC in another slot (or, if possible, another router)? If there is a hardware issue, it would be good to try this to rule out either the router or the WIC as being faulty.

Kind regards,

Graeme

No it doesn't display the serial interfaces.

The module has been tested okay on another box (2621), but no slot in this particular box (2821) can see it. Other modules (like vwic 2mft-E1) is currently producing in the box. See output below.

Processor board ID FTX1031A3RK

WIC-2T is supported in Cisco 2821 Router with a minimum of 12.3(8)T4 IOS

What is your IOS version?

All C2821 4 on-board slot is for HWIC, so it shouldn't be a problem which slot you put the WIC-2T card. Its different for other model though.

Can you post the complete output of "show diagnostics"?

Also, you can observe the output from these commands:

- show inventory

- show diag

HTH.
