However, I now need certain clients to use a different DoT server. As configuring DoT directly on these devices is not possible, I need help setting up a...

    Sorry if it has been asked but I am lately not up to date with Asus firmware features. Is there a native DoH / DoT support on ASUSWRT official firmware or flashing Merlin is required?

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

    I understand I can use merlin firmware for DoH/DoT, but just out of curiosity. It'll be a really nice security feature, which they can brag about. Its not like that they'll have to implement it from scratch, clients already exist. All they need to do is make sure it works with their firmware.

    I've been running Pihole with cloudflare doh proxy for sometime now. While it works ok, I've been considering ditching it for Asus-merlin built in dot with nextdns. But does DoH/DoT makes any difference. My ISP can still see the IPs i am communicating with and can do reverse dns lookup to see...

    As I understand it, RMerlin likes DoT, and dislikes DoH. Thoughts on DNS-over-QUIC?

    dnsmasq --all-servers

    difference between manual and automatic DoH in Firefox

    in the 384.14 Beta firmware post, the changelog has a point about disabling the automatic usage of DoH in Firefox, and how manually turning on DoH within the browser will override the option on the router. so i'm wondering, what is the difference between the manual and automatic settings? i was...
