    Best DNS for gaming

      One area I overlooked in a "perfect" set-up for on-line PC games was my internet throughput.....ie Ping. There were much better/faster results using my own choice of DNS severs than the ones furnished (default) by my ISP. One easy way to find out is use the DNS Benchmark. Takes 2 minutes. This provides the addresses of the fastest most stable DNS servers for your location. Low ping=faster response. See the top 2 fastest, enter them in your router ("use these dns address"). If you live in a desolate region, run the additional test for smaller, less known servers. It takes about 30 minutes for this test.

      If you don't use a router then change the DNS in 'Network and Sharing'
