RE: ISP server assigned nameserver addressing - how?
To know YOUR DNS's when you use Windows, go to www.anonymizer.com (in
Windows) and click "This is what we know about you" or something like that.
In most cases somewhere near the end of the page it will tell your DNS
addresses. Worked for me!!

But using "further" away DNS´s _will_ affect your browsing speed, eg if
netscape wants to connect to a page with lots o banners or otherwise
linked other sites there´s easily 20-30 dns-lookups per page, and
netscape does them one after one, so there are seconds lost sometimes
before netscape even gets the the whole page html-wise...
