Internet Router Recommendaitons 10MB Fiber

I am going to be upgrading my internet service from the load-sharing T-1's that I have now to 10MB/s fiber connection.... The provider will be giving me an ethernet connection.

I dont think the Cisco 2600 that I am currently running is going to be up to the task.

I have a few CIsco 2821's laying around that I could put an ethernet card in, but I'm not sure that router has the throughput or power to get the job done.

Any recommendaitons are welcomed!

Thanks in advance.

If you don't do anything special on that router and have layer 3 switch or firewall, you can connect that ethernet drop to L3 switch or firewall

I am running an ASA 5510 Security Plus on the other side of the router.
avilovCommented:
so if the only reason why you had that router was T1 port, you can remove router and terminate providers Ethernet link into ASA

And the ASA 5510 has the horsepower to handle everyting?
avilovCommented:
oh yes! it can handle hundreds MB of traffic
ThePhreakshowAuthor Commented:
So essentially the ethernet handoff from the ISP will just go into the same place (the outside interface) that the current ethernet cable from the T1 router goes... And with nothing more than probably some changes to the IP address of that interface, right?
avilovCommented:
yes. cable from ISP will go directly into firewall. and external interface on firewall will have an IP and default route from that ISP
