Faster Internet

Ever wanted faster internet for free? Hereís the REAL solution using this free program from Google Inc. It searches for the best DNS severs in your area and gives you there IP address. With this information you can put them into your TCP/IP configurations for the best connection to where ever your connecting to. This will ultimately eliminate tons of hops from your connection to whatever server your trying to reach.


To test theory of it I tried it on my machine, I ran a speed test from SpeedTest.net to connect to a Server of theirs in NYC, my results were pretty poor. I also ran this test at peak hours, since the ISP I use is cable my connection is shared. So I had the results of an download speed of 1.55 Mpb per second, the upload speed of 2.05 and the ping of 26ms. Now I ran Namebench, Used the best DNS servers and reconfigured my TCP/IP settings to direct it to those servers. I set the top two hits for the best servers in my area to my DNS servers as the primary(# 1 Hit) and alternate(#2 Hit). Ran the speed test again from the same site hitting the same server. The results were download speed of 2.71, upload speed of 2.07 and a ping of 23ms. Now obviously this isnít a HUGE increase but clearly a lot faster and Iím sure over time youíll see better results. You can try it out here http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

Having your download speed almost double is a pretty huge increase.

My ISP recently upgraded my exchange so I'm getting 16mbps download now which makes me a happy camper. I will try this at home but it's probably more of an American thing?

EDIT: Just ran a test at work:

Bigpond South AU is

424%

Faster

than your current primary DNS server

... Hmm.

No difference for me in my speeds but pages seem to be "snappier" with loading.

Just ran it for a first time, and LOL at my ISP failing hard (it's kind of emulating it tho, I think).

Re-running it a second time, also how do we change these settings? in the router?

Through whatever is providing your gateway Nagoshi.

Futher notes, there are other things you can do to speed this up. If you are not using Vista or Win7 you can futher adjust your MTU settings to a block that will transfer is one tx instead of two tx, XP uses a standard MTU of 1500, where per example your current ISP may not be able to handle this all at once, as a specific users connection may end up only sending a 1440 MTU, meaning your block then has to re-transmit the remaining data. Finding the perfect MTU for you in windows XP can be a little help as well, not much but everything counts.

Additional Comment:

Also, if you are using Firefox, do not forget to adjust your http pipelines ect! Those settings turn ordinary browsing into, well lets just say... sexy.

Lame. My default ISP DNS at home is the fastest one.

I mean I suppose that's a good thing but I wanted it to be faster!

Does anyone know how to change LAN settings for this in Windows 7? I ran the program and it found one that was 184 times faster, but I'm not sure what to do with the info!

Is this how it's done?

Speedtest showed no speed improvements, EOCF seems a lil slower.
