My internet been running sluggish all weekend, and I finally began to suspect the Comcast DNS servers.
I just switched to Google's and things are humming along fast again.
What are you guys using for DNS?

I don't trust google's DNS, even though it is quite fast.

do a tracert on a website and see where is the holdup. I use OpenDNS. My internet was slow last week and it turned out my TCP/IP was corrupted. A simple reset fixed it.
