OK ... I amend my prior statement 250,000+

Yet, I don't belive every corner of every network has routers that can
easily chew through 100,000 route tables.

I believe it is a legend. Unless you use Cisco 25xx to have a full BGP feed.
Yeah right. I suggest you look at real world loaded 7200s. They have
problems with full routing tables.

Any Taiwan-made PC can swallow much more. The limit is not clear but is
certainly far away from us.

and a POS OC48c to your backbone plus all the BGP peers you can sign
up at AADS on a PC.
