Will the 1841 support CME VOIP?

I have a 1841 router sitting on the shelf that used to be a WAN router.  I wanted to build a Cisco VOIP lab.  I was told the 1841 will support voice over IP.

I purchased a VIC2-2FXO card.

Unfortunately, the 1841 router (Cisco1841 V05 with 128MB DRAM) I have will not recognize the card.  When the router boots I see the following:

*May 14 22:21:01.791: %CFG-3-CARD_NOT_SUPPORTED: Slot 1: Unrecognized cookie format for card!

I am afraid that the following link shows that the 1841 does NOT support voice.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/interfaces/ic/hardware/installation/guide/oview_ic.html

Can anyone tell me if this 1841 router can be repurposed for a VOIP CME lab router?

Thanks

Looks like you need to have at least an 1861 and that platform supports 15 users.

hi, sorry to say, but...
the 1841 doesn't support voice, the vwic/vic support is for vwic/vic that support data as well.
it also doesn't support CCME. 1861 is the first 1800 to support CCME/SRST

if you're looking at setting up a lab, I'd recommend the 2811 as a good starting point.

As I mentioned, you will need an 1861.  Unfortunately the IOS version doesn't matter in this case because the chassis itself is not supported.
