Will Cisco 3845 work with 2 x 100MB lines?

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A 3845 should have more than enough horse power to handle it. It's capable of having dual gig connections.
The Cisco 3845 Integrated Services Router is capable to handle up to four High-Speed WAN Interface Card Slots.

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