    We have two(2) Cisco3620 routers.

    One is our gateway router with a FastEthernet
    card facing inward.

    The other has 2 FastEthernet cards in it, one
    facing our internal network, and one facing
    the gateway router. This router is being used
    to traffic shape.

    How should the 2 FastEthernet cards be
    connected?

    ie. by a crossover cable, or
    both pluged into a 100-Mb switch?

    Note, someone told me that a cross over cable
    reduces the speed to 10-Mb single duplex, is this
    true?

    I'd use a crossover cable. One less box to fail.

    No.
