I recently installed LMDE distro on my Laptop. I am experiencing slow internet speeds on wireless. I just used developer tools from chrome and checked the network tab for root cause. I am seeing 25 second DNS lookups. But, I don't see the same problem on my other laptop or on my iPad either. I ran the speed tests on other devices - they
are showing little more than 8mbps download speeds.
I changed my DNS servers to google's DNS. But, no luck. Still seeing slow DNS lookups. Really appreciate any help fixing this issue.
Edit: BTW, the slow dns requests are not consistent. I see them continuously for few minutes. Then, all good for few minutes and the cycle follows.
