I have CCR1036 and I want activate my webproxy and cache for fast browsing, do I need install external HDD or not? I am running hotspot with almost 700 clients.
please guide me bcz I have only 200 mbps for all my clients and mostly they complain when there is a lot of load on my system.
What do they complain about? Are they using certain timing-critical functions like Voice and report stuttering?
Are they all watching video at the same time?
Or are they just reporting slow browsing? How intensive is their usage?
Anyhow, you cannot expect a webproxy to improve things drastically. There may be a small improvement but there also will be new issues.
Do not try to cache content on the internal disk! When you want caching, you need an external disk (USB).
However, prepare yourself for not solving the problem that way. In the past it helped quite a lot, but not anymore today. The majority of cached content you will find is "Microsoft Windows Updates", and when your 700 clients are not mainly Windows devices that only use your network (i.e. they do not download their updates somewhere else already) it is not a big chunk of the traffic. Furthermore, not evey web proxy will be able to cache this content because Windows retrieves it in small chunks instead of whole files.
