Hi

1) First problem is that VIC-2FXO isn't supported on the 2800 platforms - you need a VIC2-2FXO.

2) Secondly, you will need DSPs on your 2800 motherboard - these woudl appear in your hardware list on the router as PVDM2-xx

That old card is not support in 28xx routers, no matter IOS used.

You must use VIC2-xFXO card.

Hi

Show diag

Post the output if you don't understand it, but it's quite clear - basically if you have PVDMs you will see parts like PVDM2-32 for example

The last number (32) indicates the number of DSP channels - for a 2 port VIC, you require at least 2 channels for G711 calls. If you are running G729 or other codecs you would need more. I think the smallest is a PVDM2-8.
