How to test HWIC card

I suspect a HWIC-1FE in a 2811 might be faulty, what hardware testing commands are available to me?

With a laptop plugged into the HWIC card it was showing status of "up up" put coudln't ping the laptop and the laptop coudln't ping the interface (two different laptops were tried). The error counters on the interface were not increasing when trying to ping to the laptops.

"show diag" doesn't really show anything useful;

show inventory | s SubSlot 2

NAME: "One-Port Fast Ethernet High Speed WAN Interface Card on Slot 0 SubSlot 2", DESCR: "One-Port Fast Ethernet High Speed WAN Interface Card"

I have rebooted the router (it is far far away!) and there has been nothing logging in "show logging" or to syslog about the HWIC card.

I am waiting for a laptop to be connected again so I can use the "test intercace fa0/2/0" command. But that is really the only "proper" testing command I know of. Is there any sort of POST results I can see on this device?
