T1 router

I am adding a 2nd T1 line, now we will have twoT1's. i added the VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 card to plug both T1's into.  It has ctrlr T1/E1 1 & 0. this is a bonded unmanaged dedicated internet T1to Qwest.
I have the interfaces configured; what else do I need to configure so I can plug the two T1's into this router? this is a new router/ new config Cisco 2811

You are going to need a static route to your ISP via the multilink interface.

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 63.xxx.xxx.xx  <---the other end of the serial interface (your ISP).

Are you going to have a Firewall connected to the Fa0/0 interface doing NAT?  If so, you won't need static routes to the inside network if all your traffic will NAT behind an address in the subnet connected to the Fa0/0 interface.

The firewall is doing NAT. Is this the IP I have above? ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 63.xxx.xxx.xx  <---the other end of the serial interface (your ISP).

It's the IP of your ISP's router (your next hop to the Internet).  The IP you specify is usually included in the documentation your ISP gives you.

If you are 63.xxx.xxx.2 and your ISP is 63.xxx.xxx.1, the route statement would be:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 63.xxx.xxx.1

Do I add DNS ?

JFrederick29Commented:
You don't need to add DNS to the router unless you want to do lookups from the router prompt.  The machines on the internal network will obviously need DNS but the router doesn't.

I am getting this:
ulsinc#config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
ulsinc(config)#IP route 0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 63.xxx.xxx.33
                               ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.
Do I need to add subnet mask or exit interface?

Oops, you have all your "0's" connected.

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 63.xxx.xxx.33
                       ^ - no period
