    Why Router manufacturers do not implement DoH/DoT in firmware?

    Synology does DoH in the newer firmware versions.

    Changing DNS on GT-AX11000

    Slightly off topic, but does ASUS support DoH? (DNS over Https) Like Synology Routers?

    Release ASUS RT-AX86U 3.0.0.4.386.41535 30/12/2020

    I installed the latest firmware today and I haven't experienced any issues so far. Speed and stability are great just like the previous firmware. My ISP is 1000/30 and over WiFi (3x3 AC MacBook Pro) I am able to run a speed test at 900/30 which is amazing. I don't use AiMesh, AiProtection, or...

    XR500 or R7800

    I couldn't find a R7800 in Canada for a reasonable price so I ended up getting a Synology rt2600ac, so far it is working great!

    XR500 or R7800

    Hey guys, I live in Canada and finding the R7800 is very hard compared to finding the XR500. From what I have researched the hardware is the same just the firmware is different? The price for the XR500 is $20 cheaper than the R7800, should I get the XR500 instead of the R7800? I am not a gamer...

    DNS servers

    Is there something I can do with my Synology SRM firmware to accomplish the same thing?

    DNS servers

    Cloudflare is any cast, just like google servers. This means it will use the closest server to you for lookups. I have a Synology Router, does anyone know if it's possible to block hard coded DNS lookups? I want to force every device that's connected to my router to use 1.1.1.1 I don't want...

    DNS servers

    Cloudflare DNS all the way! 1.1.1.1 I don't trust google, so I wouldn't recommend their DNS, but yes using a public DNS *can* make your internet faster and cloudlfare uses encrypted DNS.

    Block Custom DNS Synology

    Hey guys, I have a Synology RT-2600ac running the latest 1.2 SRM firmware. In the firewall settings how can I disable all custom DNS servers that are hard coded on my IoT devices? I want all the connected devices to use the DNS resolver I specified in the router, not "custom/google dns" that is...

    No idea, but I got a V2 when my V1 died, so maybe try getting an RMA.

    Latest TP-Link Firmware Update Adds AV, New Alexa and IFTTT Skills

    I just installed the new firmware on my C3150. However I run it in Access Point Mode so I won't be using the new features.

    Can I Optimize my RT-AC3100?

    you can keep the modem, there is going to be a firmware update that helps with the latency. If you check dslreports.com you can read more about the intel puma 6

    Can I Optimize my RT-AC3100?

    The PUMA 6 has high latency. However your low speeds are an ISP issue, and not being caused by the modem. You signal levels are fine, and the Puma 6 can support speeds up to gigabit, so it's not causing your slow speeds.
