Hi Guys

I'm currently trying NextDNS but I'm not so sure if my Router-Configuration is correct.
Can someone please check out my Screens and give me some thoughts if it's setup correctly or maybe give me some advice for improvements ?

Is 192.168.99.2 the IP address of your router?

Your domain name is probably wrong. WORKGROUP is a work group name not a domain name. A domain name would be something like home.lan.

Yes, 192.168.99.2 is the IP of my Router.
You don't need anything in LAN DNS Server 1 and 2. Leaving them blank has the same effect.


If you want NextDNS to also identify individual clients on your LAN you can create a dnsmasq.conf.add file as follows:
Code:
# Remember to remove these lines when not using NextDNS
add-cpe-id=123abc
add-mac
add-subnet=32,128
Replace 123abc with your own NextDNS ID.


EDIT: I think the add-cpe-id should not be required if you are using the DNS addresses associated with your Linked IP in the WAN settings.
Code:
# Remember to remove these lines when not using NextDNS
add-mac
add-subnet=32,128
