I am using some (what I thought was) wic-2t cards in 1721s that I ordered from Ebay. I was trying to set the clock rate on one of the interfaces and received an error. The card in slot0 works fine, but the card in slot1 appears to not be a wic-2t, but a wic-2a/s instead. The cards look identical, both cards are labeled wic-2t. I tried the card in mutltiple routers, and in both slots of each router to no avail. Did I get ripped off or is this actually a wic-2t card?

The WIC-2A/S and WIC-2T look very similar externally. I'd take what the firmware is reporting to be true. If the card that is detecting as a WIC-2A/S is physically labeled WIC-2T then I'd be very, very suspicious of the WIC being genuine.

I guess I have to accept that it's not a real WIC-2T. It is physically labeled WIC-2T, and looks perfect, but guess I got ripped off... –  btk_ Aug 11 '11 at 4:24

There have been a lot of counterfeit Cisco WICs dumped into the market in the last few years. Several models have been knocked-off, including the WIC-2T. –  Evan Anderson Aug 11 '11 at 4:38
