GNS 3 serial connections

Posted on 2011-10-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I tried to change the WIC within the slots tab, within GNS 3, and it appears as though the WIC seems to be "grayed out".  I tried this on the 3600 and 3700 routers.

How do I fix this?

    BTW do you happen to have two questions open about this?
