So, I'm trying out OpenDNS and when I run traceroute this is what I get



root@elias-desktop:/home/Desktop# traceroute 208.67.222.222
traceroute to 208.67.222.222 (208.67.222.222), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

and with my regular ISP's DNS server


root@elias-desktop:/home/Desktop# traceroute 168.126.63.1
traceroute to 168.126.63.1 (168.126.63.1), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
1 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 16.905 ms 16.920 ms 16.937 ms
2 59.14.0.254 (59.14.0.254) 19.520 ms 19.533 ms 19.538 ms
3 211.226.36.57 (211.226.36.57) 19.535 ms 19.542 ms 19.547 ms
4 59.14.0.253 (59.14.0.253) 19.561 ms 19.566 ms 21.250 ms
5 221.150.170.25 (221.150.170.25) 22.140 ms 22.155 ms 22.686 ms
6 125.130.3.73 (125.130.3.73) 24.214 ms 10.551 ms 15.623 ms


Typically "less" is more right?? So, if my hop count is lower then my surfing is going to be faster. Right?
What's another way that can I can test this?
Wireshark?

Is anyone using OpenDNS? What're your thoughts?
