HWIC-1FE and ios version compatibility on 2811

Unanswered Question
Sep 8th, 2009

I would like to ask if a cisco 2811 running on an ios

c2800nm-adventerprisek9-mz.124-25a.bin should be able to make an HWIC-1FE

card work? I am also not detecting the card on any show commands. Plus i am seeing that all the LEDs (FDX/COL,100 and LINK/ACT)

are lit steadily even though there is no cable attached to it, is it safe

to say that the card could be defective?

I have this problem too.

it seems that i don't have access to the advisor tool, what about other feature set like the ipbase?

Should be the same... hardware support is usually done by IOS revision, as opposed to IOS feature set (eg if 12.4(25) supports it, then it will be supported from IP Base to Advanced Enterprise Services).

". . . hardware support is usually done by IOS revision . . ."


Usually is correct. An example otherwise, was, on at least 2800s, needed "Plus" image to support some ATM interfaces.

The HWIC-1FE requires a minimum IOS of 12.4(20)T..
