I have two computers, a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is connected to the internet by an ADSL router to BSNL as the service provider. I noticed that I was quite often seeing a "looking up" message in the status bar of my browser. I then switched my DNS from the BSNL ones to Google (8.8.8.8 and 4.4.4.4) and have had no such problem since.

My laptop uses a 1XCDMA USB internet service from Reliance Communications. With this, apart from the generally poor service (since I'm not located in a metro where I would get really good speeds), I haven't found a way to change the DNS. So I'm stuck with what the ISP has provided.
