From config mode,

interface "fastethernet slot/0/port" or "gigabitethernet slot/0/port".

So if the card is in slot 1 and you want to configure the fastethernet port 3, the command would be

int fa1/0/3

Hi, donjohnston.

The card(NME-16ES-1G-P) is on Network module slot 1, then I tried follows but did not work.
Router#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 1/0/1
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

I think, once I get switch config mode, prompt will be changed from Router# to switch#. and there is key input like Ctrl + Alt then prees ??? key. Or there is config command to get into switch config mode I think, I could managed before but foreget what was it.

Thank you,
