Have you heard about google DNS.Yeh..google launched their own DNS servers for public use.Till now openDNS is the only predominant player in this area but now google joined the game. A faster DNS service will increase the speed of your internet connection too.
Here is how you can configure it in Linux,
1. Right click on NetworkManager applet. 2. Click on Edit connections. 3. Select the interface you connect to. 4. Go to IPv4 settings and manually set DNS there. (DNS Servers : 184.108.40.206,220.127.116.11 )
Thats it.Google claimed that they are fastest DNS service providers in the world.But i acknowledge that the
openDNS are the one providing more features then google.I hope google will catch them up soon.;-)
If you find any noticeable difference in the speed of your internet connection then share with me guys.
