Not too worried.....I'm not registered. Just hit the 'try it for free' link to see the docs. Didn't realize that's how they made the account link.
I'm not using it, for me it generates pages of rebind attack warnings.

Do you know if there is a 'generic' auth-id to use'?
I think just dns1.nextdns.io and dns2.nextdns.io. It will give standard DNS services unaligned to a configuration profile, I believe.

The potential bad part is people may use your profile and if logging is enabled in that profile, all their queries will be logged under your test account.

Rebind would occur for anything they block.

Is there any logic/pattern to the rebind messages? So far I've only seen 1 spurious message.
I've since cleared my logs.....but it was a couple of specific sites generating most of them. Like blocks of 20 msgs in a row. A couple of analytics sites thrown in occasionally for good measure.

I upgraded my RT-AC66U a few days ago from 39E3 to 42D5 and it is running smoothly, no issues detected, even without resetting the router after upgrade. I'm using a small set of features: DoT, DHCP, DNSFilter, Parental Control.
Great work! Thank you John! And thanks for the Community for good support.
Did you try the LATEST RELEASE: Update-42E7 ?
I am having issues with my wifi speed , so just checking with you .

Part of this fork is that the wireless drivers are 'stable'.....last change was for the Krack fix in 2017,

It's likely that wireless contention has increased with everyone at home now. If you haven't moved the router, or added new electronics in your home that can be causing noise, double check again that there aren't a lot of other access points on your selected channel.

Exactly what I was thinking.



Replace 123456 with your own ID.
/jffs/configs/dnsmasq.conf.add
Code:
# NextDNS
add-cpe-id=123456
# Uncomment the following lines to send devices MAC and local IPs
# and identify them in NextDNS Logs and Analytics sections.
add-mac
add-subnet=32,128
/jffs/scripts/stubby.postconf
Code:
#!/bin/sh

CONFIG=$1
source /usr/sbin/helper.sh

pc_replace "dns1.nextdns.io" "123456.dns1.nextdns.io" $CONFIG
pc_replace "dns2.nextdns.io" "123456.dns2.nextdns.io" $CONFIG
EDIT: Updated stubby.postconf because of change in posts #10342/10344.
I think this takes a bit too much of my knowledge.
If i type in Putty '/jffs/configs/dnsmasq.conf.add' then I get the message 'not found'.
I think it would be better for me to buy a cheap router first and do some experiments on it before I make my own router unusable.
Thanks anyway

Hmmm. Since the other helpful members have shown how to configure with your personal account for NextDNS with stubby/dnsmasq, that's something that may be doable. I'll take a look.

It's worth people bearing in mind that NextDNS is not a free service once the beta period ends. 300,000 queries a month is approximately 6.8 queries a minute.

NextDNS looks like it has some growing pains.....some stats from dnsmasq.....

Code:
Cloudflare/Quad9

Mar 31 12:15:00 dnsmasq[22780]: server ::1#5453: queries sent 2369, retried or failed 47

NextDNS

Am I correct in interpreting that a Kr00k fix for the N66U is going to require a new closed source binary driver release from Asus?

Yes. It requires at least an updated wireless driver, and an updated nas (the authentication daemon).

Yeah, I was getting a lot of the following type of message today. I've now gone back to Cloudflare which has always been solid for me.

If you are having random resolution issues with NextDNS I suggest contacting @Olivier Poitrey about it. I assume they use Anycast, so it could indicate an issue with some of their nodes.

They also recommend that roundrobin be disabled, which is unusual, but I assume that means they don't have the same capacity on their secondary?
