I have a remote location with a Cisco 2611 - it has an async interface in it, which isn't being used.  I have never actually physically seen this router.  Can the async "modem card" be removed and replaced with a standard CSU/DSU serial WIC to use with a point to point T1? I can submit config or sho ver or anything else necessary.  Thanks.

not sure if when you're talking about async ports you're thinking of the aux port to plug a modem into or if you've got async network module.

Most of the async modules i've seen were the network module variety rather than the wic, so you should still have available WIC slots.

router> show diag

should output some good info as well as sh ver .

looks like you've got:
        WIC Slot 1:
        Single Port Modem WIC

not sure what the FT1 is that's showing in WIC Slot 0, but yes, you've got a modem wic that you can remove and put a t1-wic into if you so desire.

If you still want/need modem access to that router, you can always plug an external modem into the aux port.

WIC slot 0 has a WIC - as far as I know - I wanted this router to have two - I guess we can go for it then

ahhh...FT1 = Fractional T-1.

I'm not familiar with this specific WIC, but looks like it may be of some use, depending upon what you have planned

I'll second pedrow's motion, for what it's worth...
Modem WIC and T1 WIC are fully interchangeable
You could always upgrade the single T1 WIC to a dual T1  VWIC-2MFT-T1

one slot - the FT WIC currenlty has a full T1 in it

the other slot has the modem WIC - can that WIC be used as a CSU/DSU WIC for a fractional 256k line?

the modem WIC won't work

the FT1 is your more likely choice.

ah i see

so my options are get a dual port WIC for the two leased lines, and keep the modem, or scrap the modem, and get another T1 WIC for the 256k line

yeah - i misunderstood, i was kind of surprised when I first thought that

does the WIC for the 256k line need to be special for a frac T, or will a standard 1 port CSU/DSU WIC do the trick?

the std wic-t1 with the integrated csu will do nicely :)

you just have to designate the timeslots for your bw.

I see 64 x 4 = 256
64 x 24 = 1536

I'm gettin it  :)  I have another WIC question I am going to ask in a new one - I know you guys love me...but this is how we learn, right?  I'd be a fool not to use this resource.  I really appreciate the help.  If you ever need any advice on guitars or amps, let me know  :)
