Hi,

Got 2811 router and HWIC-9ESW card.

When inserting in NM slot i.e. Big blank slot, it goes inside.

And is has screws on both ends horizontally whereas router has diagonally.

I think we have to mount this card on some chassi or assembly then fit into router.

pls suggest how to solve this issue?

I have this problem too.

Hello,

I think you were trying to install the module on a NM slot. Since you are using a HWIC, it should go to the HWIC slot. HWIC-9ESW is of 2 slot form factor. So, you need to remove the slot divider in the HWIC slots and then insert the module. Here is the procedure to remove the slot dividers.

Here is the procedure to install the HWIC-9ESW card.

Hope this helps.
