I have several 2811s before me.
They each have VPN module,
VWIC-1MFT-T1 channelized T1 and WIC-1DSU-T1-V2 WICs.
I booted one and the WIC-1DSU-T1 does not appear at bootup time in console output.
The VWIC does appear, as you can see below.
I thought, that's odd, so in looking at the WICs they have yellow alarms on them. AIM0 on the chasis is also illuminated yellow.
I did a write erase, that didn't change anything.
Here's the show hardware:

I looked at several more units and they all have similar symptoms.
Alarms, WICs not in the console. It's not normal to have so many failures.
These were taken out of a moved data center.
I haven't had much experience with bad WICs.
Could these all be actually bad? Or is there something I am missing?
I have nothing plugged into the unit except power and my console cable. I first thought the alarms might be a setting because of loss of carrier, or connection, something. Which is why I did the write erase.
I don't think this is supported on the 2800.
For 2800 you need the HWIC-1DSU-T1.
Well, this is hard to understand. As Leo says the HWIC is supported. But here it seems to say those same slots support WICs:
Interface card slots: Each version can accommodate HWICs. These HWIC slots also support VICs, VWICs, and WICs. Alternatively, two side-by-side HWIC slots can be substituted to seat one double-wide HWIC (HWIC-D).
4 slots total: 2 slots support HWIC, WIC, VIC, or VWIC type modules, where 1 of the 2 slots supports WIC, VIC, or VWIC type modules and the other slot (2 of 2) supports VIC or VWIC type modules
I believe it's supported.
Could you post 'show diag'?
