I have purchased a new Cisco 3845 Router as well as 4 x HWIC's. When the router is turned on i get the below error messages:

*Dec  3 23:25:24.339: %GT96K_FEWAN-1-UNKNOWN_WIC: NM slot 0, wic card as an unk                                                                                nown id 53B          
*Dec  3 23:25:24.807: %GT96K_FEWAN-1-UNKNOWN_WIC: NM slot 0, wic card as an unk                                                                                nown id 4C8          
*Dec  3 23:25:25.275: %GT96K_FEWAN-1-UNKNOWN_WIC: NM slot 0, wic card as an unk                                                                                nown id 4C8

The HWIC's that i have purchased are:
WIC 1SHDSL V3
HWIC 1ADSL
HWIC 1ADSL
HWIC-2FE

I have looked on the Cisco website and i know that the 2FE module is supported by the platform I am running although it obviously won't recognize. below is my IOS version:

Cisco IOS Software, 3800 Software (C3845-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(3g), R                                                                                ELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

Is there some sort of intialisation process i should be doing?

Thanks

Not sure but it looks like you have installed the HWIC into the network module slots and not the HWIC slots.

Physically where did you plug the HWIC's into?

The HWIC's are definately in the HWIC slots ranging from HWIC 0 - HWIC 3. I have an NM-CUE-EC (which is my unity express module) in the network slot with 3 spairs.

Upgrade the IOS version
You need at least 12.4(11)XJ
or the latest T train like 12.4(xx)T

From the cisco site, minimum IOS is Cisco IOS 12.4(15)T.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5853/products_data_sheet0900aecd80581fe6.html

Look at the line below table 1.

Hope this helps
