    Tutorial How to monitor DNS traffic in real-time

    If it was up to me, I would make this one a sticky thread. Unless we have an option to bookmark threads? But I don't think that this option is enabled.

    Tutorial How to monitor DNS traffic in real-time

    Sorry if I missed it but thanks to this tool I noticed my Google devices using Google DNS server (and ignoring my DHCP settings) What is the best way to force these devices to use DoT?

    Gentle request to have a 'colorblind mode' where you swap the yellow or green for example by blue ? I am having difficulty distinguishing yellow and green. o_O

    Apple devices can't access Internet if IPs are DHCP-assigned

    Is there a ISP modem/router between the UDM and the internet? This was the case for me, and that router would also send DHCP NACK, even if DHCP was turned off on that router.

    AiMesh not working anymore on 2 latest Merlin firmwares

    Are you using ethernet backhaul? This has to be enabled on the Router/AP AND on the node. Once you switch the node to Aimesh node, it will factory reset (it tells you), at that point you need to search for the node to add it to the mesh.

    What would be considered more optimal - AX88U / AC68U mesh or Deco M9 Plus

    That is useful info, RT-AX86U costs around 250€. If I need to buy 2 of those to replace my current AC Mesh setup (ground floor and first floor), I was not counting on that.

    What would be considered more optimal - AX88U / AC68U mesh or Deco M9 Plus

    So, in general, is combining an AX router with an AC mesh node possible or not? I would say in the future people upgrading to AX would want to know whether they can use their AC as a node.

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.3 is now available

    Given the high number of VPN Director users and being new to VPN myself, I wonder whether everybody is using a paid VPN service?

    Smart plugs going offline - DHCP Discover / Offer loop

    I had something similar with my Tradfri hub. I have a modem router from my ISP where I had switched off DHCP. With wireshark I saw this device sending a NACK and I concluded that probably this caused my Tradfri to not use the DHCPOFFER. So I turned DHCP on in my modem and that fixed the issue...
