Maximum number of simultaneous NAT translations

Hi all...

Does anyone know how many simultaneous NAT translations a low end device such as a Cisco RV016 supports?

I  know this is a low end device but I see no reason that with a typical  allocaiton of  220 bytes per entry and modern CPU's to walk the tree that this RV016  could not support 500 to 1000 easily?

Any  reasonable device should support 500 to 1000? I believe a linux box  would do it effortlessly for 500 tcp/udp connections ,mapped via  NAT at 100Mbits/second but I would prefer a  cisco router any day.

I am looking for at least 500+ users  in on the WAN side to 1 or 2 servers on the LAN side behind the NAT wall.

Of course worst case would assume 1 to 1 NAT simultaneous translations for numbers.

What would be the mimum low end cisco gateway router I could use to do this 500 to 1? 1000 to 1?

Am I way off on this?
