Re: 3640 Performance

I would not recommend to keep using the 3640 for that. It is a fairly old platform and you will not get optimal performance from it. If it is overloaded, it might crash but I do think this is likely, the router will cause a bottleneck in your connection.

I would rather recommend the 2800 series, the 2821 is absolutely up to this task.

Make sure your switching paths are configured correctly and fast switching and or CEF is enabled .
