I have recently reconfigured a Win2000 Server.  It provides DNS on the domain, but, I find that when there are many people using the NET, it drops in and out.  I have configured the Forward Lookup Zone but am unsure if I also need to configure a Reverse Lookup Zone.  Would this be the problem?  Also, would it be an idea to retrieve the old HOSTS file from the old server and copy it to the new one?  Could the problem have something to do with Router (DI-808HV) or the ADSL connection I have?  Are they incapable of handling the traffic?  I am pretty sure it has something to do with my DNS configurations however, but am unsure what?  Simultaneously, I am still able to ping for example, and but am unable to resolve DNS when browsing.  Any help would be appreciated.
