Packet Tracer: Can only see 2 Gig interfaces when trying to plug in, but there are 3 Gig interfaces availible on the router

Hi, I'm trying to complete daily labs in packet tracer now that I've switched to online school. I'm want to have Router0 be connected to two other routers as well as a switch (3 devices), but only 2 Gig interfaces show up when trying to connect with a cable.

If I hover over the device, it shows that there are 3 total Gig ports:

So my question is how do I fix this?

Hello,

 

as far as I recall, this is a bug in Packet Tracer. You need to turn off the router, and than add a GLC-T module to the port on the bottom right (there are four ports in the upper left corner of the router). Then, turn the router back on, and you will see GigabitEthernet0/0/2 available.

It is a weird bug and documented nowhere...
