Windows 7: How do I change the default DNS timeout value?

How do I change the default DNS timeout value?

I'm having trouble getting some websites to load for me. This didn't start happening until I got satellite internet recently.
I've been reading around and the most common answer I see is to increase the dns timeout value.
But I can't find the proper steps on how to do it for win 7.
Can somebody help me out?
