When I changed the DNS server from automatic to 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4(some ppl say Google), my rate went from 899 kbps to 1.3Mbps and upload speed from 265 kbps to 343 kbps on my PS4. Downloading a game, went from 23 hrs to 8 hrs.

Is there a way to make this process go even faster? Does latency or bandwidth determine

When I changed the DNS server from automatic to 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4(some ppl say Google), my rate went from 899 kbps to 1.3Mbps and upload speed from 265 kbps to 343 kbps on my PS4. Downloading a game, went from 23 hrs to 8 hrs.

Is there a way to make this process go even faster? Does latency or bandwidth determine this? Can my PC go to the same DNS as my PS4 for faster connection speed?

My router is a Belkin G ver.4000(about 23 years old) and my modem is a surfboard Motorola( 4 years old)

Best Answer:

Cam: Using Google's DNS servers can lower the response time. It can not make your internet go faster. Something else happened for that.

Mind you, using fast DNS servers can make the internet feel like it is on turbo chargers because web pages start loading sooner. There is a benchmark you can use to find the servers that are fastest for you. This is different for everyone as there are a huge number of factors that affect this. The tool is here http://grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm. Just run it as it doesn't install and it is tiny.

Other answer:

Cam:
Yes 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4. is Google's DNS server combination.

The easiest way is of course to get a better internet package from your ISP.

Doubt it was DNS change. DNS gets called extly one time, to resolve the name of the download. After that, nothing. Get a AC or N router.
