Re: Installing NM-1E on 2620
An unknown port adpater message typically indicates that the verion of
IOS on the box does not recognize the port adpater in question.
Typically means you need to upgrade to a newer IOS... 12-27-2004 08:32 PM

Re: Installing NM-1E on 2620
12.1, 12,2, and 12.3 will work. NEVER use version of code on a router
that has a "T" or "X" in the name unless you need a specific feature.
T code is new software features, and X is new hardware features. 12.1T
code becomes 12.2 code, 12.2T code becomes 12.3 code, and 12.3T will
become 12.4, same with X code. The only T or X code you should run is
the latest train of T code, in this case 12.3T, because any feature you
need in 12.2T code is available in 12.3. Code without letters contains
only bug fixes, of the previous T and X trains.
