Increase Speed of BSNL Broadband connection
Setting DNS For Your Connection
One of the major problems with BSNL Dataone Broadband connection is the DNS servers they provide by default. Most of the time they are very slow and sometimes they fail to respond. I noticed that I am starting to spend a significant amount of time in DNS resolution with Dataone connection, often it is larger than the time it takes to actually get the reponse. Here is a simple solution to significantly speed up your DNS resolution.
Open up the network connection profile and edit TCP/IP settings. In the DNS server address fields, specify the following DNS server addresses: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
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.

Yes it should work..
Just write down your original settings and use the ones given in the first post and see how it goes and if it doesn't make any difference just revert to your original DNS settings and you will be fine
Dont forget to report back what the result was.. a screen shot of your speed test would be a huge favor.. if possible before and after pictures please.

I guess you got the wrong impression.. These DNS settings wont increase your speed beyond what your plans max speed is, it would only help in bringing your actual speed to the advertised speed for your plan so if you are getting anywhere near 80% of 256kbps then you are getting what you should do and anything above that is a bonus

The downloading speed was normal to me bcoz it was same as it was bfore.
Here's a screen cap of my speed
By using RapidShare Premium speed is 200kbps-240kbps.
By using Torrents speed is 220kbps-250kbps.
By using DIRECT HTTP or FTP speed is 250kbps constant.
