Hi. If I stop unbound, my internet connection gets very slow/messy (website stop loading or take a very long time) upon restarting unbound, everything gets back to normal. I tied rebooting both the router and the computer and it does not help.

Do you have any suggestion? is there any configuration options I should check?

Thank you.

Try manually bouncing dnsmasq
Code:
service restart_dnsmasq
then use dig or any of the other dnsmasq debugging methods to identify the problem with the troublesome website.

Hi Martineau, thank you for your reply.
I am afraid I am not an expert at all, but, after stopping unbound:
dig works from the router but it times out from the computer.
Code:
service restart_dnsmasq
did not help, nor did
Code:
dscacheutil -flushcache
sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
on the computer (mac) side.

on the computer side, I have both router and DNS servers set to 192.168.1.1

evidently something gets disrupted between the computer and the router. I'll try and investigate a further.

PS: incidentally: How do I switch into unbound advanced from the unbound manager menu?

entering E:Option ==> advanced does not work (only "easy" does).

thank you.

Most invoke unbound_manger in Advanced mode using the command line
NOTE: E:Option ==> advanced xxxx requires a unique 'password' to activate the mode.

Could this be caused by the Entware updates a couple of weeks ago? and Could this be fixed by "stop" then uninstall "Y" (prompt to keep old setting??? Y/N) then reinstall?
