• Use better faster DNS servers, like OpenDNS.org (126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52).
• Connect directly to DNS servers to avoid DNS forwarding through your router (acting as a DNS proxy).
• Turn off IPv6 DNS lookups in Firefox/Camino (references: mozilla.org).

• Update your router’s firmware (references: jungledisk.com, ubuntu.com) for better SRV and IPv6 handling.
