Adding WICs @ 2611XM

Dear all,

I'd like to either add one or more FE ports on my box or a  WIC-1ADSL-I-DG. Background being is I want to run a pppoE client w/o touching the built-in interfaces which are in use. There is a NM bay which I could free for this. Also, there is a single WIC slot, too.

From what I have read, taking a NM-2W is the only option according to but there seems to be no FastEthernet WIC that will fit in AND run on the 2611XM. ( IOS =

(C2600-IK8S-M) (12.2(8)T8 ).

I've grabbed a NM-4E off eBay for some bucks, but because the 16 MBit downstream pppOE link outperforms its Ethernet host link, using this is not really an option.....I've also considered the WIC-1ADSL-I-DG which I doubt to be running on my IOS.

I'm, as a 3rd option, thinking about a NM-16ESW-1GIG which is obviously supported.

Can s/o shed some light on this?
