I push a constant 2-3 Mb of Internet bandwidth, with peaks of up to 15
Mb and extended periods at 6-10 Mb, through a 4801 setup for bridging.
 It's not maxed out at that either.

To be reasonable, I wouldn't attempt to push more than a constant
15-20 Mb through a 4801, though it can probably do more like 35-45 Mb.
 If you're pushing that much Internet bandwidth, you should go for,
and have the budget for, something faster.
