Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Hi Thanks for looking.
Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provide you with Domain Name Server which translates website names to language that computer can understand which is an IP address of the website. Faster the response from DNS the faster your website will load.
In this tip I will explain how to change your Domain Name Server (DNS) in order to speed up your web browsing.
Start--->Control Panel--->Network Connections
Please note that you may need to switch to "Classic view of Control Panel in order to see default view.
Right click on network connection that you are currently using and choose "Properties"From the list in box choose "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click "Properties" below. You will be shown a window with two tabs and in General Tab you will have options to change your IP address (we don't want to touch this)and option to set DNS manually.
Click on " Use the following DNS address"Now you can change your DNS to whatever you like. I recommend "Open DNS" which is faster then most of default DNS's.
Ok to change your DNS to "Open DNS you need to type 18.104.22.168 in preferred DNS box and 22.214.171.124 in Alternate DNS box.Click OK and then OK again.
Bravo! You just changed your DNS.
