You can use the DNS bench mark in the link to find the best DNS server in your area. https://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm
For me the fastest DNS was 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 but very little difference between that and Google's DNS.
There is no avoiding the fact that using a wired connection for gaming is the way to go if possible.
To improve your wireless connection it's more important to follow the recommendations on the first link. Also use WPA2 security and AES encryption, find the best channel using the guide I posted and eliminate walls between your machine and the wireless access point are what matters most. If you can't eliminate the walls then you should install an access point in the same room.
Channel bonding can sometimes be used to increase bandwidth, they are the 20mhz/40mhz settings in your router's set up page, but that only works correctly with an already very good
Switching to wireless N only
in the routers set up page will speeds things up considerably if no other machines need to connect using slower wireless standards like G, B.
