HWIC-1FE is a router interface.In which device are you using it? You cannot configure a L3 port with swichport command.

Use subinterface on that module with "encapsulation dot1q 'vlan_number'" where the vlan_number is configured on the switch (if you connect the router to a switch) and allowed by the trunk config.

Please tell me if you understand or give more details.

Good luck!
