help request: configure ATM service on Cisco 2611XM router with VWIC-1MFT-T1 wic card

Can you connect to a service provider's ATM network using the VWIC-1MFT-T1?  I was told this is the WIC I need because it is a Multifunction Trunk, but I am still not seeing any ATM options in the config screens.  Please inform if you know this is or isn't possible with the 1MFT.  If you know how to configure this, please help.

Thanks,
D

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Apparently you can run T1 data over ATM networks if you also have this add-on card (in addition to the VWIC-1MFT-T1): AIM-ATM

  And check the minimum IOS requirements (bottom of same pg):

  (You'll need to be running the "IP Plus" or "Service Provider" IOS feature sets.)

  Also, here's a list of ATM Network Modules for the 2600 series (I'd confirm if they're compatible w/ the 2600XM series):

For something like this, I recommend either calling Cisco pre-sales tech support (800-553-6387) or a local Cisco Reseller.
