I've looked at the thread fir this topic and multiple other sites already and most people said that switching to open DNS helped them. I tried this and it worked perfectly that day. The next day it seemed WORSE than before i switched, so i tired refreshing my router, and that sped things up again. After those first two gays, however, my internet is just as slow as before. If anyone has any advice (be specific, I have other computers on this network that I don't to mess up so any router directions need to be as specfic as possible). Also a couple specs- Intel core 2 duo processor, netgear wpn824 router configured with open DNS (DNS server set to 'use these' and the 2 DNS servers 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52). The router is brand new, and my mom's super old Toshiba laptop that will barely turn on is 100 times faster since i started open dns, so i can't figure out the issue. I'm grateful for any help I may get, thanks!
