Re: cisco routers that can handle 100 meg internet connection

the question becomes about services (nat, cbac, acl, zbfw, qos).
isr/g2 are software platforms -- a cpu has to handle all aspects of the forwarding of traffic. as you increase service load, you decrease throughput.

that being said -- a c3900 with an appropriately sized spe should do the trick.

I would mainly use it for nat my idea was just for a lab I'm not willing to spend thousands of dollars on this when an old p3 can handle my connection. I must ask when you guys have high bandwidth requirements on the wan do you only install Cisco or do you go with other vendors or even open source something like Pfsense.

i work consulting for a large cisco partner. i hock cisco.
the isr/g2 provides a lot more flexibility than just routing. it creates a 'branch in a box' through sre modules, switching modules, voip, wireless controllers, etc.
