Hi Ahmed,

You should try upgrading to the latest version of the IOS on that router, if you haven't already done so. This error is suggestive of a conflict between IOS and the firmware on the card.

Also, ensure you're using the right IOS image for your particular model of 2800-series.

Have you used this card successfully on that router previously? If not, has it worked with any other router, even a different model of router?

Kind regards,
