Faster Internet Sharing 56k

By eiresh ·
I am using a dial up connection to the internet, which is shared (college student). I am using Sygate software to share out the connection.
What I would love to know how to set up a DNS server in windows 2k Advanced server to freeup bandwidth and speed up my internet connection. Currently I am running W2k Professional for my gateway and w2k Server as a DC.
I am trying to learn this stuff, so any information tou can off would be a great help. I have only installed DNS, I don't know where to go from here.

DNS will not solve your problem

by timwalsh In reply to Faster Internet Sharing 5 ...

DNS queries for websites do not taken up a sufficient amount of bandwidth that you would notice any difference. Also, your DNS server, because it would not be authoritative for any resources outside of your network would still have to query external DNS servers. Thus there would be no savings of "bandwidth."

No matter what you do you can't speed up your connection beyond the speed of the line. If you are sharing this connection, you WILL experience extremely slow access times whenever both of you are accessing the Internet at the same time.
