Ok thank you that was easy!! I wanted to try this to see if I could get more speed out of my router/wifi so I did a before and after speedtest and the results were the same…so no increase in speed. Is this surprising or sound normal??

Ok thanks!! I ended up here trying it due to a Youtube vid declaring: “double, triple or even quadruple you internet speed in 5 minutes!!!” lol

Yeah! Welcome to the world of random myths on the Internet :smiley:

What Cloudflare’s DNS can potentially (no guarantee either) do for you is speed how quickly you resolve (translate) a website address to its IP address. How fast the site loads however wont change.

It’s a minefield out there!! anyway, thanks you both @sandro and @martin2 for your very prompt responses! Cheers!!
