    YazFi: Guest Networks and DNS Director?

    I have an Asus RT-AC3100 with 386.5.2. I'm using guest networks to isolate some devices and the DNSFilter feature to use OpenDNS to block some websites.

    Why does DNSFilter use the mangle table for IPv6?

    It looks like it's been this way forever, but why does DNSFilter use the mangle table to drop IPv6 traffic? Generally, the mangle table is only for mangling packet headers, not dropping them. Seems this would be better suited for the filter table. Probably a moot point with newer routers...

    [Question][RT-AC68U] Switch DNSFilter without opening GUI

    I'm running Merlin 384.11 on my AC68U. I'm trying to find a faster method of switching DNSfilters for a particular device and wonder if it's possible to do so via script or otherwise. It's mainly a speed thing - it's a little effortful navigating and logging into the router admin site...

    DNSfilter and Hurricane Electric Tunnel

    Recently, I started using the newly added Quad9 dnsfilter along with the dnssec setting. Works nicely, thanks. I changed the dns setting in my Hurricane Electric tunnel to the DNS ipv6 servers, and it no longer works. Tried setting the dns settings on the tunnel page back to HE dns, but it still...
