Cisco dual T1 card on 2901 router

I have a 2901 router with a VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 card that I have not been able to make work.
I have added the following to my config but still don't have any serial interfaces available through IOS.
card type t1 0 0
controller T1 0/0/0
controller T1 0/0/1
Am I missing something or is this hardware combination just not supported?

VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1   is indeed supported by 2901 routers.

You need to define timeslots.

e.g
controller T1 0/0/0
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24
controller T1 0/0/1
  channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24

Now you will have something like,
Serial0/0/0:0
Serial 0/0/1:0

Best,

Thanks for the link, after reading the steps pretty carefully I found the that command I was missing was...
channel-group 1 timeslots 1-12

Open in new window

I am not really sure if I need/should use any of these other commands for a simple data T1 but so far I seem to be working after adding the above command to each controller.

Lol. Sorry, I get lazy with typing commands in sometimes. Good to read up on things sometimes also.
