Router 2612 Series without Serial interface?

Unanswered Question
Nov 15th, 2007

Hi, Recently bought Router 2621 but came without serial interfaces. Most of my practice requires serial interfaces i.e. BGP, Frame-Relay.

All it has is 2FE, console and a AUX port.

Can someone please explain how this router module could be used to server my desire purpose?.


I have this problem too.

For things like Frame Relay there is no real substitute for serial interfaces and the previous post about purchasing a serial WIC is good advice. For routing protocols like BGP it matters much less what kind of interface. You can run BGP just fine over LAN interfaces such as FastEthernet.
