I have changed the DNS of my Computer System from the default ISP one for a faster one.
The Shields-Up benchmark stated that I needed to change the Computer adapters also for best results.
I have 2 different Adapters, USB and Area Network adapter.
My setup has the Westell 6100 modem, the Netgear N900 Router connected to a home built computer with I7, 12 meg ram.
Everything seems to work OK as it is now set up with all the same DNS addresses.
My question is...Should I use the same DNS addresses for everything, or use different ones for the Router and the computer's 2 adapters? I think that the router takes over the addressing of the DNS when it's addresses are working....but what happens if the router's DNS address are maybe overloaded and quit working?
Yes, I am just starting to learn about networking and would appreciate any advice!
