Increase web browsing speed on Q

Posted by onlydarksets on September 12, 2006

This hack changes the DNS servers (which the web browser contacts before each web request to figure out the IP address of the web server) from Verizon’s slooooowww DNS servers to OpenDNS.com’s FAST servers.

  1. Download and install PHM Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to registry key:
    HKEY\Comm\Cellular Line\Parms\TcpIp\DNS
  3. Change default values to:
    1. 208.67.222.222
    2. 208.67.220.220

Note: Should you need them again, the default values are 66.174.95.44 and 69.78.96.14.
