Hello All,

Below servers of google give less than 65ms latency from Indian ISPs.
Some how not all DNS servers of BSNL, Tata, Reliance & AirTel resolve to these new IP addresses of google.

Ti get around the DNS problem, just add following lines to your C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file


# google
209.85.153.83 mail.google.com gmail.com
209.85.153.104 www.google.com www.google.co.in google.com
209.85.153.85 www.orkut.com orkut.com img1.orkut.com img2.orkut.com img3.orkut.com img4.orkut.com images.orkut.com

C:\DOCUME~1\balla\Desktop\tmp>ping www.google.com

- google gmail and orkut really feel fast once the change are done

I happened to notice these ip addresses on my BSNL connection at home. but my workplace VSNL dns server resolves to a different IP address. So i digged little deep and got a workaround for people having a DNS server like me :)

Very cool. Noticeable difference, especially with Gmail which loads much faster now. Thanks!

this seems authenticate this time but never never never put IPs in hosts file in such a waytomorrow i can say, make google faster by pointing it to say 11.22.33.44 and which wud be actually my own IP and then i can make page look completely like google and steal ur cookies or even password.merc is totally new user and its infact his first post. so we dont know him but looks authenticate. although reverse lookup seems to be pointing to google, but if u dont take care, then next time u can send ur password to anyone.

yup. and google might discard these ips in the future which would make it bad for the users who do it now :pthese are temporary solutions. and are not recommended at all :D

yes its not recommended.its unlikely that google wud discard IPs becasue its full series owned by them. but it can be that these are just test IPs/test servers or servers under testing and can mess ur account.
