We have a Cisco 3845 router, BGP, full routes enabled. Planning on installing a double 100MB card inside and running 200MB pipe down. Would like to know if the 3845 can handle it, or should we upgrade?

Thanks!

A 3845 should have more than enough horse power to handle it. It's capable of having dual gig connections.

The 3845 is rated at 256mbps so it would be able to handle two 100mbps links.

According to what I read before, it says that 3845 can do line speed routing up to T3.

But,

If you use policy-map, to shape someting, or prioriitalizing, the bandwith is goes down!

You want to use it only routing?
