    Cool How does DNS affect on download speed?

    Hi, sometimes My ISP DNS causes problem on surfing, so I changed it to google DNS.

    I feel the dowload speed became faster than before !I did not know how?

    ps, I think this is the right section of my thread.

    DNS has nothing to do with download speed. It's only job is to resolve hostnames to ip addresses.

    If you have really slow name resolution, it could make your whole web experience unpleasent.
