Cisco Router: Defining The Card Type For PRI/T1 Modules/Module Does Not Show Up
There are some types of T1 wic modules that will not show up in the config until you tell it what type of card it is. Here in the US, we us T1 lines with these types of modules, not E1 (although Im not sure why, E1 is faster). In this case, I have a VWIC3-1MFT-T1/E1 module.
Notice the picture below BEFORE I type in the command to enable the card.
Now, lets enable this module in the router:
Router(config)#card type t1 0 1
