Hello,

You could use 'Open DNS'. They allow you to go through their DNS servers and many have reported a noticeable increase in speed.
They have configuration pages for your OS or hardware router.

http://www.opendns.com/

Secondly, If you’re on Windows, install 'FastCache'.

AnalogX FastCache is a caching DNS server that runs on your local machine and handles any DNS request that your computer makes, from Internet Explorer to your favorite FTP client. Once a query is made, FastCache will override the normal timeout for the item with one that you specify, so instead of saving a query for a couple of seconds, it can save it for a couple of days. Now every time you ask for it again while it's in the cache, it gives it to you instantly.

Download AnalogX FastCache From Here



Download Firefox

http://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-3.5.6&os=win&lang=en-US


When you have installed Firefox;

In the address bar type in about:config >> in the filter bar type in pipe under network.http.pipelining >> right click toogle >> under network.http.pipelining.maxrequests >> right click >> Modify and change the value to 30.

This makes firefox use 30 connections instead of just 4. Making your surfing speed slightly faster.


Download and install this Firefox add-on called: Fasterfox:
