    I'm unclear on the change made regarding DNSSEC validation enabled by default. My LAN is a bit old, and am running two VM DNS servers that do NOT support DNSSEC. These two DNS servers are configured by a separate DHCP server. The router is not performing any kind of DNS or DHCP.

    If I upgrade to v33E7, how would my setup be affected? I'm currently running V32E4. Thanks.

    If this is indeed how you are configured (not using the router's dnsmasq for DNS or DHCP), you should not have any change.

    The change affect those that are using the router's dnsmasq as their DNS server, and have enabled DNSSEC.
    Previously, if the upstream DNS servers didn't really support DNSSEC, things would still work. Now the DNS lookups will be failed.
