Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
1: One of the major problems with BSNL Dataone Broadband connection is the DNS servers they provide by default. Most of the timethey are very slow and sometimes they fail to respond. I noticed that Iam starting to spend a significant amount of time in DNS resolutionwith Dataone connection, often it is larger than the time it takes toactually get the reponse. Here is a simple solution to significantly speed up your DNS resolution.
Open up the network connectionprofile and
edit TCP/IP settings. In the DNS server address fields,specify the following
DNS server addresses: 188.8.131.52 and184.108.40.206
Disconnect the connection and then connect again. You are done.
This specifies third party DNS servers which are significantly faster than BSNL Dataone’s DNS servers.
Tip 2: Firefox users can use FlashBlock extension to preventdownloading of Flash content by default, thereby significantly speedingup browsing experience. You can click on the placeholder icon todisplay the original Flash content any time. This is more of a passivetip in that reduces data usage to improve your overall experience.
Tip 3: You can try to increase your broadband bandwidth tweaking theTCP/IP parameters. The process is simplified by using TCPOptimizer, afree tool. It helped me, your mileage may vary.
