The ADSL feature is supported in the IP/ADSL Image ("y7" image) for the Cisco 1700 Series. Cisco 2600/3600/3700 series routers require a PLUS IOS image for ADSL if using 12.2T. From 12.3 Mainline and beyond ADSL WIC support is available in the "IP Base" feature set. Some QoS features require an advanced image (IP PLUS, IP VOICE, or above) for Cisco 1700/2600/3600/3700 series router support. The ADSL WICs are supported on the "IP Base" feature set for the Cisco 1800/2800/3800 ISRs. The default IOS image for the Cisco 1841 ADSL bundles is the Cisco IOS IP Broadband image. In addition to all the features of the "IP Base" image, the IP Broadband image also has the Service Assurance Agent (SAA) features. The default IOS image for the Cisco 2800 series ADSL bundles is the Cisco IOS SP Services image.

The ADSL over POTS WIC (WIC-1ADSL), is available on the Cisco IOS 12.3 Mainline for the Cisco 1700/2600/ 3600/3700 series routers. This WIC is supported on the 1800/2800 series ISRs starting with the Cisco IOS 12.3(8)T Release, and on the 3800 series ISRs starting with the Cisco IOS 12.3(11)T Release.
