Rob, I will go to opendns.com and see what I need to do, to use their
DNS Servers for web browsing, etc.,  temporarily, until I get Caching
DNS up and running. If my ISP is using them upstream, for their DNS
Service, it would be very easy for me to change the settings in my
ADSL modem, from the 2 DNS Servers at my ISP, to servers at
opendns.com and eliminate the delay at my local ISP.  I'd never heard
of opendns.com until I tried to connect to a secure server at irs.gov
about 10 days ago and got an SSL warning from Firefox, that the cert
belonged to opendns.com     Another idea. Thanks! Lanny
