is there a preferred router for Ethernet WAN applications 10MBS, 100 MBS? Running BGP going to MPLS network? Can a 1841 work? Or is there reason to move up to 28xx or 38xx? Is it possible to avoid the Router and just plug in to a Core Switch like 6513?

Hi Scott

Its all about the total bandwidth and number of routers you will recieve from your SP through your BGP session.

I think 1841 wont be a best fit with the requirement you have. Better to check out for 28xx or 38xx based on the above 2 points i have mentioned.
