I have a 4801 on 1.2b3 in bridging pushing a whole lot more than a T1.
It's had periods of 1-2 hours that it's been up to 15 Mb. That's
Internet bandwidth - hosted web sites, mail, CVS, etc.
Actually originally had a 4501 in there, and it got the job done just
fine. We ran it at 6-8 Mb for several hours. Only reason we put in
the 4801 instead is the webGUI was *horribly* slow. CPU was pegged at
100% when pushing 6-8 Mb bridging. I've yet to see the webGUI get
very slow on the 4801.
