cisco 1941 router and wan fiber

Hope someone can point me in the right direction...

 

have a 1941w router in two sites - main office and a branch office.

we have the opportunity to upgrade from a T1 setup to fiber - 100Mb in both sites

 

is there a plugin module for the 1941w router to connect directly to fiber?

if so, how would the config go to allow for example a 80/20 split (20Mb internet, 80Mb direct link)?

 

i found this module, but not sure if it would work:

Cisco EHWIC-1GE-SFP-CU Gigabit Ethernet Enhanced High-Speed WAN Interface Card

 

thank you

My recommendation is this:  Don't waste your time and money. 

 

A 1900 router is NOT designed to push 100 Mbps.  A router suitable for 100 Mbps is 3945 or 3925E.

I agree - the 1941w would be

I agree - the 1941w would be maxed out if you had any services (QoS, ZBFW, VPN, etc.) at all running apart from just basic IP routing 

The appropriate current platform for this would be one of the new ISR 4321 (50-100 Mpbs) or ISR 4331 (100-300 Mbps).
