cisco 1941 vwic3 2 port t1 card

Hello experts. I am new to cisco

I had 2 t1 lines installed which I want to combine to double my bandwidth. I installed the card in a hwic slot. I noticed the interface which I thought woukd be serial did not show when I did sh int

I've been figured out I had to do the controller card type command which is fine.

my question now is what do I need to do to combine the lines. also how do i route the traffic if there is no serial interface to assign ip

thank you so much

Yes. Maybe the controller needs to be configured before the interface is recognized??

To be more clear with my question.  This is a point to point line connecting my two offices.  Office 1 is on the network and office 2 is on the network.  I would like to connect them using the t1 line.  With my other office its simple.  I assign an ip to the serial interface on each side and do a ip route entry.  with the controller I don't see that I can assign a ip address to any serial interface so I do not know how the data will be routed
I don't know how much help I can offer on this but did you turn the router off before you installed the card?
