Antonio,

Hello, it appears you are running into a hardware limitation in the router.  Most entry level routers cannot pass traffic at "line rate", so even though your device has a 100Mbps connection it can't make use of all of this traffic.

According to the following document (Under the "Performance" header) the Cisco 500 series router is rated for ~8Mbps of traffic with "IMIX" traffic (that is a mixture of feature sets like NAT, VPN, ACL's, etc) or ~30Mbps with 1400 byte packets.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps9305/qa_c67-485432.html

So getting 50Mbps through this router is already beyond what the hardware is rated for.  :-)

If you need 100Mbps with light features then you may want to look at something like a Cisco ISR G2 1941.

I hope that helps,

-Brian
