•show diag—Lists and displays diagnostic information about the installed controllers, interface processors, and port adapters. Typical examples are network modules, interface cards (WICs, VWICs, HWICs) and advanced integration modules (AIMs).
9 Interface Numbering
Each interface (port) on a Cisco 1861 Integrated Services router is identified by a number. The Cisco 1861 router contains the following WANLAN interface types:
•One onboard Fast Ethernet LAN interface (FastEthernet0/0)
•One onboard Ethernet switch
•One fixed VIC slot with 4 FXS ports
•One fixed VIC slot with 4 FXO or 2 BRI ports
•One modular HWIC/WIC/VWIC slot
The numbering format for the slots is interface-type 0/slot-number/port-number. Table 3 summarizes the interface numbering.
Table 3 Interface Numbering
Slot Number Slot Type Slot Numbering Range Example 1

Modular HWIC Slot
0/3/0 to 0/3/x, where x depends on the card-type.
interface serial 0/0/0
1 The interfaces listed are examples only; other possible interface types are not listed.
Note On the Cisco 1861 Integrated Services router, the numbering format for configuring an asynchronous, or async, interface is 0/slot/port. To configure the line associated with an async interface, simply use the interface number to specify the async line. For example, line 0/0/0 specifies the line associated with interface serial 0/0/0 on a WIC-2A/S in slot 0. Similarly, line 0/1/1 specifies the line associated with interface async 0/1/1 on a WIC-2AM in slot 1.
Note If you have specified the use of a private line automatic ringdown (PLAR) off-premises extension (OPX) connection mode for an FXO voice port (with loop resistance less than 8000 Ohm), you must ensure that the soft-offhook option is enabled on the port.
This option allows a stepped offhook resistance during seizure which avoids overloading the circuit during offhook in the event that ringing voltage is present on the circuit at the same time as the trunk seizure. The stepped offhook resistance is initially set to 800 Ohms, then adjusts to 50 Ohms when ringing voltage is not present.
To enable soft-offhook command on the port, and to access the connection command with plar opx syntax, see the Cisco Command Lookup Tool.

Step 5 For configuration procedures, refer to the applicable configuration instructions in the Cisco 1800 series software configuration documents. See the "Where to Go Next" section for information about accessing these documents.
Note To avoid losing work you have completed, be sure to save your configuration regularly as you proceed. Use the copy running-config startup-config command to save the configuration to NVRAM.
Step 6 When you have finished the initial configuration, verify the initial configuration. See the "Verify the Initial Configuration" section for verification procedures.
Verify the Initial Configuration
To verify that the new interfaces are operating correctly, perform the following tests:
•To verify that the interfaces are operating correctly and that the interfaces and line protocol are in the correct state—up or down—enter the show interfaces command.
•To display a summary status of the interfaces configured for IP, enter the show ip interface brief command.
•To verify that you configured the correct host name and password, enter the show configuration command.
When you complete and verify the initial configuration, your Cisco router is ready to configure for specific functions. See the "Where to Go Next" section for information about locating documentation for advanced configuration procedures.
