Without knowing what you tried, it's difficult to know what to suggest,
but here are some things to consider:

I)	Try different DNS servers (perhaps OpenDNS)
II)	Try a DNS cacher (dnsmasq)
III)	Do something simple, like 'dig somesite', from the command
line, preferably repeatedly, and report the response times (dig itself
will report ';; Query time: n msec')
