fxs port not working

Hi there,
I've a 2611 XM router with an FXS card and FXO card each. FXS seems not to be working..When I plug in, no dialtone..If I do show voice-port summary, then it recognizes the port in on-hook state. However, if i lift the reciever which should change the state to off-hook, it doesnt happen and there is no dial-tone; state is still on-hook ... I've reinserted the voice module card in and swapped the slots of fxo and fxs but still the same ... Do I need to configure something in voice-port to enable dialtone or it should be automatic as soon as i plug in the phone ? Is it possible tht the fxs might be faulty but then the router recognizes it in voice-port summary command...

thanks ...

if you do a show inv do you see any dsp modules?
Have you set up a .T dial peer for the fxo port ?
nabeel92Author Commented:
yes i can see the 2 fxs ports in show inv ... whats the point in setting .T dial peer for FXO port with detecting a tone in FXS port ?
greg wardSystems EngineerCommented:
the show inv has to show dsp

NAME: "DSP Module Slot 1", DESCR: "Packet Voice DSP Module Slot 1"

without a dsp module the router cant handle sound.

Then, if i do show voice port summary

Router#show voice port summary
                                  IN      OUT
====== == ========== ===== ==== ======== ======== ==
1/0/0  -- fxs-ls     up    dorm on-hook  idle     y
1/0/1  -- fxs-ls     up    dorm on-hook  idle     y
1/1/0  -- fxo-gs     up    dorm idle     on-hook  y
1/1/1  -- fxo-gs     up    dorm idle     on-hook  y

also, the fxo line works fine coz i can terminate my pstn line into fxo and use it as a gateway for pstn calls ... its just the fxs ...

I'm not even sure if running config or IOS version has anything to do with fxs port not being able to generate dialtone..shudnt it be a hardware generated function ?

Looks like you do have a voice ios.
Below cisco dial tone troubleshooter
Im not sure if its hardware or generated as part of cptone.
