I have been googling non-stop to figure this one out and I can get no definitive answer. I see people say that its not compatible and according to what I have found at one point that was true. Cisco documentation expresses that this hardware is compatible with 12.2(icon_cool.gifT firmware. I have tried to get this sucker to work, but I always wind up getting the port adapter disabled in my show diag. What's the story here, has anyone actually gotten this card to work in a 2620XM? If so what IOS did you use? Thank you in advance

    2FE2W came in two versions - first and second - V2. Which one do you have?
