    This video is actually in correct
    the second one should be 8.8.4.4

    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..
