There seems to be a bug with this application - see Issue 27 - namebench - Windows version running locally will not save .csv data ( not responding.... ) - Project Hosting on Google Code

Here's an alternative benchmarking utility - testing now. GRC's|DNS Nameserver Performance Benchmark

Works OK. I ran the test whilst having 2 IE8 tabs and Outlook 2007 open. For best results, no other application that has access to the Internet should be running.

Thanks Dwarf - The Steve Gibson one is the one I used to use - but it completely evaded my memory

and I'd filed it in network tools not internet tools in my tool-kit

It has the advantage of showing the addresses of all the DNS servers that it is querying, so you can update yours to the most responsive ones.

I just changed mine to google, and a torrent I was D/L jumped from 40kbs to 450+kbs, is this a coincidence, or was my ISP throttling my D/L speed?
It was a fluke!
I was D/L at a rate of 450 kbs yesterday, but today it's back to normal 40 kbs or less.

Changing to OpenDns was a lifesaver for me. My new Dell Studio XPS 8100 would not consistently access the internet via our Kyocera KR-2 router, though an older Dell we have running XP would, and so would our Toshiba Notebook and our Acer netbook. The new Dell worked OK directly connected to the DSL modem, though. Now, using OpenDns, the connection via the router is rock-solid. Many thanks!

Windows 7 64bit Not Addressing 4GB RAM on Macbook Pro
Hi all I have a Macbook Pro 13 (2010) model and have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate (64). When I check the system settings it says "RAM: 4GB (3.74GB Available)" and I reckon some of that is shared with the 256MB GPU. Is there anyway to fix this so that Windows utilities the 4GB? Thanks.
