I currently have  2610XM supporting a single T1.  Would like to add 3 more T1's and multilink them.  If I remember, the 2610 will only support a single T1 speed... is that correct?

If so, which current router is recommended for 4 T1's.  This will be just simple routing, no firewall, voice, IPS, etc..

I believe you can use a 2621XM Cisco router. I believe that it is modular. It should have 2 WIC slots in back of the router that can handle 4 T1 connections ( 2 ports per card). I have used this router in the past for a 3MB connection into a datacenter I was supporting. Although one of the ports on the WIC went bad and we were utilizing one T1 for connectivity for almost 3 months. This is the way you may want to go.

not 100% sure but i have used 1700 routers and they bond t1s and have a throughput of like 10Mb.

I would think you can do what you are asking.  you can easily stress test that.
