Trying to configure serial vwic2-2mft-t1/e1 card for internet T1

I am trying to configure our new 2811 with a vwic2-2mft-t1/e1 card.  We have two t1's that are currently connected to another router.  We will be changing over to the 2811.  I am trying to move one t1 at a time over to the new 2811.  

I installed the card into the router and got the router to recognize the card.

This is what I have so far


!
controller T1 0/0/0
 framing esf
 linecode b8zs
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24
!
controller T1 0/0/1
 framing esf
 linecode b8zs
!
!

interface Serial0/0/0:0
 ip address 65.46.98.102 255.255.255.252
 encapsulation ppp
!

I am missing something.  I am not sure what it is.  I haven't configured a router for about 5 years so I am a little rusty.  I can get around but I am having trouble trying to figure out what I'm missing.

I have the IP info from XO and the encapsulation.

I am sure I am missing a speed line or a clocking line.

Why do you think you are missing something? Is it not working?
Can you post result of show int serial0/0/0:0
I think I'm missing a line for setting the speed of the line.
The speed is set automatically by selecting the number of channels (timeslots), so it is already set to full T1 speed.

This is what sho int serial  is giving me.  Do I need to specify the clocking speed being done by XO?

Okay before we go any further I made an embarrassing mistake.  I had the cable plugged into the wrong serial interface on the card.  I had it in 1 instead of 0.  They are opposite the FE connections.  I know it was a dumb mistake.  I hooked it into the correct serial interface and it went up and up.  However,  when I tried to ping to the gateway it still wouldn't go.

So I looked at the ip route and saw that it had info for the other IP that we have and I configured the serial interface with that info and it worked.

I appreciate your help  lrmoore.  You got me thinking when you said it didn't look like the I was detecting the carrier.

Thanks for the help.
The solution helped me figure out that I had done something physically wrong with the wiring.  It got me thinking in the right direction.  Good job lmoore.
Thanks for the update!
lrmoore,

I also gave you knowledge points (or whatever it does for you).  I'd been working on a router issue between two of my 2811's for several months.  We initially had the bridging set up by a vendor and in the process the bugger did one thing wrong; he typed the following for our T1 Controller:

controller T1 0/0/0
   channel-group 0 timeslots 24

Instead of:

controller T1 0/0/0
    channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24

As you can imagine, this resulted in our serial0/0/0:0 bandwidth shooting up from 64 kbits to 1536 kbits.  Night and day I tell you!!
yipes! Glad you got it sorted.
