    No. Using OpenDNS servers for DNS is rather irrelevant to bandwidth/speed. And name resolution plays even less a part in P2P networking than web.

    As far as the torrent goes, it sounds like there were a lot of computers online with pieces of the file, then there were less. If you can see the number of peers, their state in relation to your client (downloading, uploading, connection refused, choked, whatever) and file availability for the chunks you still need, you might better understand what is happening. (Sometimes you might even find that there are a lot of peers, all of which are missing part of the file.)

    Yes. OpenDNS provides normal DNS service - it returns IP addresses for domain names when they are requested. DNS is like the phonebook of the internet. It can also provide domain filtering, blocking sites you don't want users in your network to visit. So I doubt that you are doing anything wrong. It's just that DNS doesn't have much to do with network speeds, and P2P makes little use of DNS.
