Cisco 2621XM Hardware Compatibility Question

I am extremely new to routers (other then home routers) and I have been trying to research some hardware compatibility for our Cisco 2621XM routers.

I know the 2621XM has 2 Fast Ethernet interfaces integrated already but I have a need for a third.  I have been trying to research compatible options but seem to running into conflicting information.  I have been looking at the following module, can someone let me know if this is compatible with the 2621XM and if so what the minimum IOS version required?  I am looking at the NM-1FE-TX.

If this module is not compatible can someone recommend a Fast Ethernet module that is compatible with the 2621XM?  I have both my WIC slots as well as the NM slot available in my configuration.

Thank you,
-David

officially only the 3600 series routers support the NM-1FE-TX module, whereas the 2600XM routers only support the NM-1E and NM-4E modules.

however 2620XM and 2650XM's did run the NM-1FE-TX (unofficially)
