Autosensing, autonegotiation, and automatic media-dependent interface crossover

Manufacturer: Cisco
Model (Available): HWIC 2FE

2-Port Fast Ethernet High-Speed WIC for Cisco Integrated Services Routers

The Layer 3 Cisco 1- and 2-Port Fast Ethernet High-Speed WAN interface cards (HWICs) supported on Cisco Integrated Services Routers offer small-to-large-sized businesses and enterprise branch-office customers the option to add Layer 3 routed ports with many advanced features, including quality-of-service (QoS) and rate-limiting capabilities.

The new HWICs provide additional Layer 3 routed ports with features equivalent to those on the motherboard of the integrated services routers. These Fast Ethernet interfaces can be used for physical LAN segregation, creation of a demilitarized zone (DMZ), or as a WAN interface. Broadband customers can use them to connect to an alternate provider that delivers service on an Ethernet port.
The Cisco Fast Ethernet HWICs are singlewide interface cards, available as a 1-port HWIC (HWIC-1FE) and as a 2-port HWIC (HWIC-2FE), that provide Cisco modular and integrated services routers with additional Layer 3 routed ports.

Feature Highlights
The Fast Ethernet routed ports on the HWICs have the same characteristics and features as the onboard LAN interfaces for the integrated-services-router platforms. Along with Layer 3 connectivity, such as per-port access control lists (ACLs), routing, and IP addressing, these HWICs provide functions equivalent to those of onboard Fast Ethernet routed ports. The following is a partial list of features supported in Cisco IOS® Software for the Fast Ethernet HWICs.
