we are trying to squeeze every ounce of life out of our hardware. Adding bandwidth to our network to accommodate social networking traffic. We are about to order a 200 meg Ethernet circuit with a T3 backup. We have two 3662s. My question: If I install a NM-2FEW2 card in one of them, will that serve as an Ethernet handoff? If not, is there a way to configure the 3662 as a handoff? What would I need to make that happen?
UPDATE: Understand that a 3662 with 100 meg ports probably won't work. What if we add gigabit adapter to 3662, or use a 7206vrx with gigabit adapter?
I believe that there are several issues in what you are suggesting. First I am not sure that the 3662 can handle a 200 meg connection. Secondly to support a 200 meg connection it seems you would need a Gig interface. But the interfaces that you are dealing with are only 100 meg interfaces.

As Rick has already touched on, a 3660 series router doesn't have the performance to effectively support 200 Mbps. For that kind of bandwidth, you would want something like a 3925E, or maybe a 3945.
