FWIW, I've worked with many brands and configurations of routers, DNS servers, and network configurations and have never experienced router behavior like the Mod posted. That is not to say it can't happen, but I agree with Baric and EarlyOut on this one.
Oh, my. A new, inexperienced moderator, arguing with one of the most knowledgable people in the forums, and spouting a lot of anecdotal nonsense.
And stop using all the quote marks.

Welcome to the forums uribarri. Nothing like initiation under fire.

And using "statically assigned DNS" severs like Open DNS may help, but "statically assigning" is always going to help because you no longer use the linksys router address as your DNS server, (The DNS server your PC will see.)

I live in Minnesota and now that OpenDNS has opened a Chicago data center I have switched to their DNS servers. I've noticed a slight perforance increase.
Interesting qualitative assessment. Would love to see some stats on query times posted, to put some numbers behind it.
