Cisco 887VA using dual Ethernet ports for Aggregation

We are running a Cisco 887VA router for our internet access but of course the port connected to the internal network only supports 100Mbit/s. 

There are a few 100Mbit/s ports on the router; I was wondering whether it was possible to use more than one port to provide aggregation to get higher speed such as two ports providing 200Mbit/s?  We are running Gigabit internal.

Any ideas on such functionality or what's required for this?

Any help, ideas, tools, tips, config are greatly appreciated.

Not really. The router CPU is not powerful enough for high speeds.

If you need wire-rate inter-vlan routing, get a layer 3 switch.

Thank you for your comment Paolo - you're right, we already come to the conclusion that the 887VA can't seem to push more than 90Mbit/s at 1500 bytes.

Even if you could do this what are you going to achieve? I am guessing that your WAN connection to the internet is not more than 100Mb so having 200Mb/sec between your router and switch is not going to make internet access any faster.
