Does using DoT disable HW acceleration? I am not yet running Merlin, but I am considering it as I would like to switch to LAN-wide DoT DNS (NextDNS with filtering), but is it possible DoT could mean an extra load which would disable HW acceleration for packets. I am running ~700Mbps connection and as far as I can tell the dual-core CPU in AC68U could then handle probably ~300Mbps and that is without mentioning a fully pinned-down CPU, which I don't like a sound of.
