You need atleast 12.3.14T or higher to make this card to work.

I don´t want to add to a (possible) confusion, but according to the software advisor, the card is supported starting with IP Only 12.2(13)ZH5


What happens when you try the command ´card type t1 X´ (or ´card type E1 X´), where X is the slot where the card is inserted to ?

I think GP is right on the fact that the controllers does not show up on the sh version, until you give the card type command. The vwic2s are capable of being configured as T1 or E1. So unless you specify it as either a t1 or e1 it wont show up.

With NM-HDV2 and VWIC2s the port can be configured as a T1 or E1 port. So it wont show up on the sh version, nor will any controller config show up on the running config.

You have to go into global config mode, and specify,

config)#card type {t1|e1} x y

x = slot number

y = wic slot number

Once you specify this command you should get a syslog message saying, Controller is up and running.

Now if you go back to privelege mode and do a sh version, you should see

1 channelized T1 port.

Can you do a "card type" and press a question mark (?) from global configuration mode.

What do you see ?

Do you see options for t1 as well as e1 ? Can you paste the output ?

Also depending upon the slot in which you have put the card, the slot / port number will change from 0 to 1,2,3 etc.

To answer Edwin's suggestioon, when I checked FAQ for vwic2-2mft-t1/e1, it does say 1760s are supported (with a min. of 12.3.14T)
