Hello

I have a 1721 router with 1 fastethernet and 1 T-1 module.
I have an empty slot and I'd like to add another fastethernet OR ethernet card. what are my options for both fastethernet and ethernet?

You can add a WIC-1ENET to the 1721 to add a 10Mbps Ethernet interface.

Alternatively you could add a WIC-4ESW to the router which basically integrates a multilayer switch.  You could create VLAN's and SVI's (VLAN interfaces) to route between.

are there any single-port 100 mbit interfaces?

Flexible connectivity for any environment

The KE6900 series can extend and deploy computers with high definition displays across multiple stations in a variety of applications that suit any environment. Expand computer use to stations across multiple rooms with dynamic access.

Nope, not that I have ever seen.  The WIC-1ENET would be perfect for a DSL connection with an ethernet handoff if that is what you will be using it for.

Exactly right - none of the 1700 series support a single FastEthernet interface for WAN interfaces.   As JFrederick29 mentioned, a WIC-4ESW or WIC-1ENET would be the way to go.

  See also "Table 2 WAN Support for the Cisco 1721":

>are there any single-port 100 mbit interfaces?
  Yes, there's the network module NM-1FE-TX (& variations thereof), which isn't supported on the 1700 series.
