Easy fix: better ISP.
I'll try it out, thanks
So all u have to do is set ur Primary DNS Server to 184.108.40.206 AND the secondary to 220.127.116.11? Sorry im at work and couldnt listen to the sound
thats what the video said to do
That is correct.
This video is actually in correct
the second one should be 18.104.22.168

Edit: Can u use this world wide? or just america?

yes its world wide
Google isn't always the best public DNS, depending on location and ISP another DNS may be better. If you're wanting to find the best public DNS for you I'd use Google's DNS benchmark, I can't remember the exact name but it's close to that. If you're interested just google it, I'll see if I can find a link to it. I use it everytime I move or change ISPs, granted I don't do either one of those frequently, it always seems to help my connection.
Edit: found it, it's called namebench, here's is the link to the Google code page. http://code.google.com/p/namebench/
I didn't watch the video, so it may have said this, but make sure you change the DNS on your router. If you change just the computers DNS it won't help your Xbox/PS3.
So your saying that changing your DNS servers to google DNS will remove all lag?...
That made me laugh :P
just use namebench to get the best dns, and true it really depends on where you are.
Damn, I'm sure DNS has nothing to do with lag. It depends on your ISP.
So would changing the dns on the xbox matter since it's still going through the router? Should you update dns servers on your router and keep your xbox to automatic so it chooses your router by default? I feel like such a network noob but willing to try anything that helps no matter how little..
so do i change my secondary DNS to 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199, because according to google namebench its 188.8.131.52
Not always true. I have 25 download and 20 upload can't remember my ping ATM , but it's not bad. I'm living in Vegas. My friend in WV has dsl 3 dl and .5 upload. The point being I always 3 bar and he pulls host.
Separate names with a comma.
