Few hours back we informed you about the release of Google Public DNS. In case you are not aware of it, check this out: Google Public DNS: A DNS Resolver From Google To Speed Up Your Browsing
I have just tried the Google public DNS and i observed that Internet browsing is now quite fast with Google Public DNS. Its really worth trying. Give it a try, I hope you would like it.
How To use Google Public DNS on Windows Vista:
Step 1: Go to the Control panel, there you will see Network and Internet tab. Click on it.
Step 2: Click on Network and Sharing Center and then Manage network connections (See the screenshot below).
Step 3: If you are willing to change DNS settings for ethernet connection then right click on Local Area connection and then click on Properties . (In my case I have changed the DNS settings for Ethernet connection)
If you want to change the DNS settings for a wireless connection, right-click Wireless Network Connection, and click Properties.
Step 4: Under the Networking Tab, click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
Step 5: Now click on Advanced (See screenshots below) and select the DNS tab. If there are any DNS server IP addresses listed here, write them down for future reference, and remove them from this window.
After removing the IP’s from there (if any) click on OK.
Step 6: Now select Use the following DNS server addresses, If there are already numbers listed in the field of Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server, then please make sure to write them down safely so that you can revert back to your older settings in case of any problem.
Now replace the entries in the field of Preferred DNS server or Alternate DNS server with the IP addresses of the Google DNS servers: 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124.
Click OK, and Its all done now in DNS settings, you may now open up your browser to surf the web.
