Cisco 1721 router with ADSL WIC

Hi. I'm trying to setup a brand new unconfigured Cisco 1721 router with a ADSL WIC card. The card is installed into WIC 0 slot, but when I power on the router, it finds fast ethernet 0 port but displays nothing for the ADSL WIC card, either on startup, or a 'sh run' or 'sh int'.  I haven't setup ADSL cards with Cisco before, but have done serial cards and with those were displayed when the router first started up, and on a 'sh run', 'sh int' etc.  The green light on the back of the router is on solid, suggesting that it can see the WIC card.

Does it sounds like the card is defective, or is it supposed to work like that? I'm setting up ADSL over PPPoA, so if anyone has an example config they could post to help me, that would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Usually if the interface is not showing up you don't have the proper feature set in IOS. If you do a show version what version of IOS is this router running. Attached is a sample configuration for pppoa.

cf_root is correct. If you don't see the interface for the dsl WIC, then you don't have the proper version of IOS that has the drivers in it for the WIC....

The minimum IOS versions for the ADSL WIC on 1700 routers:
12.1(3)XJ, 12.1(5)YB, 12.2(4)T (minimum "T" train image)

Make sure the images are for the PLUS or ADSL feature sets, as well.
