GNS serial connections

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.

I tried both when the device is stopped and when it's started.

How do I fix this?

Okay, the 3600 series does not have  WIC, but they do have the NM-4T that is four serial interfaces. Regardless, like Ernie stated the numbering is not all that important.

If you look at you'll see that the 3600 doesn't have any. The 37xx should have though. Just checked it on a 3745. What version are you using?
If I am not mistaken, even the 3600 series have the serial interfaces.

Hello Claricccccccccccccccccccccce ;)

Well I checked, in my version (thought it was 0.7.3) the 3600 doesn't have wic options.

Well serial is serial....
The way it is seen in a cisco depends on the hardware (modular, etc.). This is just a matter of notation and it shouldn't matter if it is s1, s0/1 or s0/0/1. the functionality remains the same.
