How This Tip Works
When you connect to a web site your computer sends
information back and forth. Some of this information deals with
resolving the site name to an IP address, the stuff that TCP/IP really
deals with, not words. This is DNS information and is used so that
you will not need to ask for the site location each and every time you
visit the site. Although Windows XP and Windows XP have a pretty
efficient DNS cache, you can increase its overall performance by
increasing its size.
You can do this with the registry entries below:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Make a new text file and rename it to dnscache.reg.
Then copy and paste the above into it and save it. Merge it
into the registry.
