Re: [H/W] New Router
Not sure if you want to stay within the confines of IOS but an ASA5505 can certainly handle the traffic. I push around 48Mbps through mine using roadrunner wideband and its loaded with quite a bit of ACLs, EIGRP, NAT, and 2 IPSEC tunnels and packet inspection.
CPU usage hovers around 7% normally and under full load around 38%.
Just my 2 cents
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -Douglas Adams
I looked at the ASA 5505, but there are a couple strikes against it, mostly having to do with familiarity and management of an ASA appliance. I would also need to upgrade the license package, and that puts it in the same ballpark as the 1921.

I just received an ASA 5505 and setting it up. I normally use USG series by Zyxel and actually dont find the ASA that bad (I wouldnt pay CIsco prices, but its a work unit). What I find tres cool on this 5505 is that two of the lan ports come with POE.
