I have a strange problem. I have setup many networks from stratch but I have recently implemented a 'Internet Only' solution for a building with 75 - 100 clients with low to medium intenet usage. The building runs no servers, only standalone clients.
The main plan was to install 2 x ADSL2+ lines and load balance them, so far only 1 line has been setup. I have attached about 50 clients to the new system as a test.
While the throughput is good (12mb down / 1.2mb up) browsing websites is generally very slow slower than it should be with with the amount of traffic. Once a connection is established ie a download the throughput is fine.
My thinking is that an internal DNS server (a 2003 box for example) is needed to cache and resolve the querys much quicker, as a the moment the router is the gateway & dns server.
Does anyone agree or have another idea?
All switches are gigbit and the router is a Draytek 2820.
