And what is the url address that you are wanting to connect to? You can use safe DNS by inserting in the DNS Servers box the following:
System Preferences>Network>Show:Ethernet or Airport>TCP/IP
Generally Safari issues can be posted here:
Are you using the latest version of Safari?
Please tell us more about the 'safe DNS' you have posted. I just plugged them into both my Kihei and MBP - instant speed for MBP and Kihei is the same as before.
Kihei's preference pane was blank. MBP had a couple of weird numbers beginning with 85. DNS servers on home service begin with 24.
Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks for the response. I plugged 'safe dns' into Scroogle this morning and read up on it. I changed all of my DNS numbers over to the ones mentioned (including two routers). The results:
Kihei loads web pages noticeably faster, close to 50% faster IMO.
MBP now loads pages almost instantaneously when connected by ethernet cable; probably 50-75% faster in wireless mode compared to previous results. Found strange DNS numbers in the MBP network preferences pane, which may explain why it has been creeping along recently. I would like to see the Airport Connectivity speed up a bit, as it used to be near instantaneous at one time too. The 'slow down' seems to have started with the 10.5.6 upgrade.
