I suggest running a munin-node on the router. With it you can get graphs
displaying metrics such as packet throughput, bits per second per interface,
cpu usage and interrupt rates. Those graphs should give you a better view on
what kind of load do you get with your current hardware and where the
bottlenecks are if there are any.
