provide an individualized recommendation. namebench is completely free and
does not modify your system in any way. This project began as a 20% project

I happen to have the Oracle VirtualBox installed and have mastered that sufficiently to have added a "network drive", where I can easily put downloads or other files while running Mandriva, then use them once XP in VB is fired up. (I'm impressed with how polished Oracle's VB is and use it monthly for a "Go To Meeting" event that is windows-only software. ) So, I put the ~167kb file over there, started my XP machine, and...
Judging from that, I set up the static dns settings in the Tomato firmware...
