Install and Configure Ethernet WIC in Cisco 1720
Posted on 2008-06-18
I have a Cisco 1720 router with a T1 WIC installed. I'm trying to add an Ethernet WIC to the second WIC slot in order to have another LAN segment on the router. I've installed the WIC card into slot 1 (T1 card is in slot 0 and is working fine) but the card does not show up when I run "show interfaces". I tried swapping the card locations so that the Ethernet WIC is in slot 0 and the T1 WIC is in slot 1 but that didn't work as I lost connectivity with my T1 line. My router version / config is below. I thought I had the right level of software and memory capacity to use the Ethernet WIC in slot 1 with another card in slot 0 but maybe I'm wrong. After installing a WIC, is there anything I need to do to have the new interface recognized or should it just show up after it's installed (assuming it's supported)?
