Network Modules and 2610XM

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone can clarify if the NM-1FE2W or NM-2FE2W will work in the 2610XM?

These two pages seems to contradict each other:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/products_relevant_interfaces_and_modules.html

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps259/product_data_sheet09186a00801aa71c.html

I've an option on some 2610XM's cheap for my lab, but I need to have 2FE ports in each. Some people have told me the NM-1FE2W and NM-2FE2W will work in the XM's and some others have said they wont!

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Kevin

Look under Table 5.  Make sure have the correct IOS version with right feature set.

Hi Kevin,

The "Portable Product Sheet - Module Crossref" confirms - no support for NM-1FE2W in the 2600XM routers. The NM-1FE2W is only supported in the 2691, 3620, 3640, 366x, 3725, 3745, 3825, and 3845 routers.The only supported LAN Network Modules in the 2600XMs are the NM-1E, NM-4E, and NM-16EWS. The only supported "WIC Slot Adding Network Modules" in the 2600XMs is/are the NM-2W.

Hope to Help !!

Hi Leo, Ganesh,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post.

I'm still none the wiser though!

--Leo,

Table 5 does indeed imply that they will work. But then table 3 implys that they wont!

I think I might have to take a chance and get my hands on one. If all else fails, I can still use it as a BBR.

I'll post back if/when I get a result.

Cheers guys.

Re: Network Modules and 2610XM

Hi All,

Just for information, the NM-1FE2W (as expected!) doesn't work in a 2610XM with a 12.4T IOS

The NM-1E's work fine though.

Network Modules and 2610XM

I was in a similar situation. Even if the wireless module(s) are supported, a used 800 series router with built in wireless works out about the same price as just the wireless module.

Wireless modules:

     HWIC-AP-G - $150 (approx.)

     HWIC-AP-AG $169 (approx.)

*prices from eBay - 29/03/2013

Cisco 871W 4-Port 10/100 Wireless Router - $100 + $15 shipping

I ended up buying an 800 series (871w) router.

Hope this helps.
