Re: 887 with Gigabit ports and Gigabit "internet"
Just because something has Gigabit port (whether it is switch port, router port, NIC port), it does not necessary mean that it is able to push data in wirespeed. Certain considerations are also in the mix such as CPU, ASIC, backplane (if applicable). For server NIC, harddrive speed and buffer come into play.
There is Cisco router performance table that can be found in this forum FAQ to get some ideas of how capable the routers are in term of pps (packet per second) data throughput.
