Hello

Here you go;

Windows XP change DNS server
You can Click on Start button > Settings > Network connections
Double click on Local Area Connection or your Internet connection
Click on Properties button
Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Click on Properties button and Look for Preferred DNS Server:
Setup NS1 - 208.67.222.222
Setup NS2 - 208.67.220.220

Save and close the windows. If you are using old version of windows you may need to reboot the system.

To test new setting go to Start > Run > Type cmd
Type nslookup command
Now type domain name
yahoo.com
google.com

Linux change DNS server

How to increase internet speed ??


People will advice you to use softwares such as boosters to increase speed, but believe me it wont considerably increase your speed, you can check your internet speed ( http://www.ip-details.com/internet-speed-test/ ) before and after installing such softwares, instead the only way to increase the speed is by you subscribing to a higher speed

hmm...

Use a fast browser...

Try Wyzo from Mozilla Corp.

Also, clean your machine for TEMP files and viruses.

Run a full system scan every weekend to ensure full security.

Use freeware tools:

www.ccleaner.com
www.revouninstaller.com
MalwareBytes antimalware
Use Norton (Symantec) Free Scan:

How to improve my internet speed


hi Prem,

If you are using 256 Kbps broadband and you have installed 10 PC in ur network with Star topology then i dont think it shold be creating the problem. Star topology holds best compatibility in a small network.

The Problem would be causing because of your network card.
Network Card (NIC) plays most important role in ur network for transmitting and receiving data efficiently and fastly.

So you would need to check out for ur NIC card first i.e what catagory of NIC are u using?

You need to upgrade ur NIC in the server and also in ur client's PC.

Different catagory of NICs are-
1. 10 Mbps
2. 10/100 Mbps
3. 100 Mbps
It is recommended to use 100 Mbps NIC card for best performance in ur network. This will surely improve your net speed.

Another cause of ur slow speed is your broadband speed. If you have Cyber Cafe then you should upgrade with atleast of 512 Kbps of broadband speed in your network for better performance.
And use a good broadband service provider who are using good spectrum and bandwidth.
Like - Reliance, Airtel, Sify etc. (for India Only)

The given solution will defenately help you to improve your Network. e-mail me you acknowledgement on - rock_65@hotmail.com.

How to increase my internet/downloading speed?


More than likely, the 460.8 figure is in kiloBITS per second, which means your downloads measured in kiloBYTES per second will be at a maximum, 57.6, which is still obviously higher than you are getting. One thing to consider is that you might not be in an area that supports 3G. That will affect your speed. Also, on the windows end, you can try this little (free) utility that will optimize your TCP settings in the registry: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php
this utility is not a "speed optimizer" snake-oil program that just compresses images or something cheesy like that. It was actually mentioned on TechTV.
