Routers for MetroE

So here is my question.

I have Two 2621 routers, and One 3640 router. I have a total of three locations. Where the 3640 is thats how the users get the internet. and the others just branch. We have put in 100mb metroE so that way all of the locations can be on a 100mb pipe. Now the 2621's and the 3640 have 10/100 mb connections and i can terminate the fiber using trendnet devices. Does anyone see an issue with using this config. Put into your mind that budget is a huge issue.

Yes, neither of these old routers will be able to keep up once presented sustained traffic.

Please refer to attached document for an idea of the maximum performances that you can get from your present routers..

If you could attach the fiber to some L3 switch that has an SFP to lit directly, it would be much better. The 3650-8PC is a good candidate in my opinion.
