    i prefer to use dnsadvantage (primary), opendns(secondary) and google public dns(teritiary) i never use bsnl dns servers as they fail to nslookup new sites most of the time.
    If it was easy, everybody would be doing it. :P

    u can aslo try the effecient Simple DNS Plus or the free treewalk dns

    I prefer to use acrylic dns proxy

    What is Acrylic?
    Acrylic is a local DNS proxy which improves the performance of your computer by caching the responses coming from your DNS servers.

    check with google's, own ISP's, DNS, openDNS etc .
    How Fast Is Your ISP’s DNS Server; Compare with Speed of OpenDNS

    Namebench is a new open source tool that helps to take the guess-work out of the DNS server selection process. namebench benchmarks available DNS services and provides a personalized comparison to show you which name servers perform the best
    It hunts down the fastest DNS servers available for your computer to use. namebench runs a fair and thorough benchmark using your web browser history, tcpdump output, or standardized datasets in order to provide an individualized recommendation. namebench is completely free and does not modify your system in any way. This project began as a 20% project at Google.

    Here is the download link
    namebench-1.3.1-Windows.exe - namebench - namebench 1.3 for Windows (portable executable) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    After installing click start and it will take about 10-15 mins approx to do a series of tests and then display a page where it shows the comparison of your current dns server and the best dns server

    here is how its looks,just an example

    Thank you man for this useful information.This worked 1000% for me!

    changing dns won't really give a noticeable difference if internet in your area is ok.

    But still my rep power is 1, can you tell me how to check points?
    REp Power is depending on REp Points received and number of posts.
    usually after 500 posts REP power will increase by 1.

    2.Please open USERCP and scroll down.
    you will find the Rep points and who gave you point/s for which thread. total on top.
