Connecting the DC modem to a PC modem and proxying the PCs connection will give you a maximum connection speed of 33.6kbits. The modems connecting the machines are only capable of sending data to each other that "fast".

Why? Most online games work perfectly on those speeds. I never experienced any lag in games when using the normal modem.

You *might* get a slight improvement if your proxy does caching of web pages but it is hardly going to change your world. ;)
