    Hi, so my ISP like many runs crappy DNS servers.. I got fed up yet again of waiting for 'looking up www.google.com' etc. which in my opinion is such a frequent lookup by everyone that the IP probably should be burned into ROM at this point.

    I have assigned some new DNS servers in the static settings, and lookups are faster again.

    The thought occurred to me however.. wouldn't it be nice if the Tomato had a checkbox for 'caching'. And whenever a user requested a name, the router would provide it, and if not in possession, only then would request it off either the static or dhcp servers.. This should provide a lot of speed..

    As a matter of fact, it does.
