RE: RADWare Linkproof? (or better ways to multihome)
If you were gonna put down the $$ for a 7206, I would look hard at a little Juniper M5 with a 4-port ethernet card. 40M pps and 5 Gbps ought to be all the throughput you can handle for less than $40K. A 7206VXR's throughput is a fraction of that.

Are we talking the support of FE interfaces, or support of FE throughputs ? The switch may indeed support FE ports, but performance of the router will vary with packet size, IOS featues etc. I would be very suspect of the 2621 supporting even 1x10baseT FD at wirespeed ... Based upon my experience (limited I conceed) the 72xx is the minimum router to support the potential throughput of multiple FE ports ...
