    faster DNS servers will only make opening of certain sites at certain times faster.it will not change your download speed.open DNS servers(208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) are considered better than bsnl's own dns servers.

    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    Problem with the BSNL DNS are that they cant resolve many domain ,we can use open DNS servers but it affects the speed ,any other solution other than open DNS

    Open DNS servers being outside the BSNL network have higher latency (ping time is more). The BSNL DNS servers will be faster to reach.

    But when the load is high, the BSNL DNS servers will be slower to respond. Hence URL resolution will be slower. Open DNS have a battery of servers across the globe and will be able to resolve quicker.

    I often switch between OpenDNS and BSNL DNS from time to time.

    OpenDNS or BSNL DNS sometimes affect the net speed also.

    I am right now on OpenDNS. And I am getting decent download speed. But upload is not good.



    Sometime (days) back, I was bad speeds on OpenDNS (829 kbps/218 kbps) and I changed to BSNL DNS. I got immediate speed benefit (1.7 mbps/284 kbps).

    It can be done manually. Just one minute business.

    Control panel > Network connections > Local area connection > properties >
    TCP/IP > properties.

    No. I set the DNS in the router.

    I do not change this very often. Maybe, once in a month and that too, if I observe that the speeds are slow.

    Thanks for the fast reply. I was googling, but got so many different numbers like 218.248.240.23, 69.65.59.222, I guess they all are correct.

    I think they work too. I used one starting from 69.xx.xx.xx last week.

    If you are using BSNL DNS, it is best to leave it automatic. You will get the nearest DNS that way.

    For your record, DNS cannot improve your download/upload speed, DNS is the server that will return the ip address of the domain which we want to navigate, So the speed of IP address retrieval depends how FAR/FAST the server is. i recommend you to run namebench application and let him decide the best dns for you. http ://code.google.com/p/namebench/

    Even though the server are closers or marginally faster, BSNL's DNS can't resolve quite a few sites. Might be a block, courtesy the government. So, I use OpenDNS and Comodo, which are definite to give a consistent speed.

    Using the benchmark tool, I found that Google's DNS (8.8.4.4) and one of BSNL's default are found to be the fastest

    Here are some free, fast DNS sever IPs

    Google:

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    Comodo:

    8.26.56.26
    8.20.247.20

    OpenDNS:

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    My plan is BSNL ULD900 in mutiplay server, i got the best results when i used the servers returned by the namebench, but that was when i weekly update my dns. Now i am using dyn internet guide(216.146.35.35), second choice is BSNL DNS (218.248.255.146), it gives me the best results so far. Better than Open DNS/Comodo i say. :: Google definitely own a fastest server but unfortunately it is not best to me, (And definitely i don't want let them know what am i browsing, i am using Google products like gmail, picasa, etc so they know my ip and when i use Google public DNS they can easily track me ) FYI -> The best for me wont be the best for you, your ISP and servers has major role in it. So run benchmark utility and select trustable DNS if you want consistent speed.

    Use OpenDNS. They have some customization features unlike google. And speed is almost the same as google gns.

    TRY Norton DNS.

    Security (malware, phishing sites and scam sites)

    Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.40
    Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.40

    Security + Pornography

    Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.50
    Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.50

    Security + Pornography + Non-Family Friendly

    Preferred DNS: 198.153.192.60
    Alternate DNS: 198.153.194.60

    Hi,

    I have been using 1111 Combo BSNL plan with 2 mbps and 15GB download for some time. Past one year it was very good. Then I goofed up with the settings and now am not getting the same speed. Earlier the downloads used to be at about 150 - 250 kbps. Now after the reset the download speed doesn't go beyond 70 kbps. This is the status with the wired connection with UTStarcom wa3002g4 modem/router. Interestingly the wireless connections are much better. I couldn't connect to the BSNL services as they just do not pick up the phones!! So I am left with myself to tweak it out.

    Initially the wired connection to desktop refused to work when the IP and DNS settings were automatic. When I connected my laptop to the same wire, internet started working in laptop!! So I presumed it to be me desktop Antivirus or Firewall that is interfering. I formatted the desktop drive and reconnected without the Antivirus. But same problem persisted. Still no connection!! I checked the 2 LAN ports and they were working perfectly. So I set up the desktop with fresh OS install and then keyed in the IP and DNS from whatever I saw on this forum. I tried several settings. But none of them are giving me the speed that I used to get earlier. Speedtestdotnet tests are also not reaching 2mbps and are stuck at about 700kbps. Earlier this test used to return higher than 2mbps speed.

    In between I also changed the RJ 45 cable to a good quality one. I did see a download speed difference of about 10kbps.

    Am located in Bangalore and the exchange I connect to is Indiranagar Telephone Exchange. Any help will be useful.

    Thanks and Regards

    Indrajit
