I'm trying to bring up PPP over a T1 port on a Cisco 2811. I recently upgraded the firmware to 12.4(24)T2:

cisco-2811#show ver
Cisco IOS Software, 2800 Software (C2800NM-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(24)T2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

It has 4 slots installed with T1/E1 ports (three 2-port modules and one 1-port module):

cisco-2811#show diag
Slot 0:
    C2811 Motherboard with 2FE and integrated VPN Port adapter, 2 ports
    ...

    WIC Slot 0:
    VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1 - 1-Port RJ-48 Multiflex Trunk - T1/E1
    ...

    WIC Slot 1:
    VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 - 2-Port RJ-48 Multiflex Trunk - T1/E1
    ...

    WIC Slot 2:
    VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 - 2-Port RJ-48 Multiflex Trunk - T1/E1
    ...

    WIC Slot 3:
    VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 - 2-Port RJ-48 Multiflex Trunk - T1/E1
    ...

I have specified the card types as T1 and rebooted. I can see the Controller interfaces in the show run output, but I still don't have any Serial interfaces in the show run or in the interface ? output. I've pasted my full configuration below. Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks, Nathan Alderson

Figured it out. Just needed to create channel-groups on my controllers:

controller T1 0/0/0
 cablelength long 0db
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24

Now I've got serial interfaces!
