Using DNS 1.1.1.1

Just wondering if anyone has tried to use 1.1.1.1 (&1.0.0.1) as their IPv4 DNS settings

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

I am using it for both ip v4 and 6 on my rbk53 system. Works well, no complaints.

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

Have you keyed the settings in your router/Orbi or just into your devices?

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

Hi, I made the changes to the settings directly in the router. Updating each device manually would take to much time, break automation and make it more difficult to troubleshoot. The only exception I see is if you got a dedicated DHCP server and a more complex hardware set up.

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

Using 1.1.1.1, Quad9 and Google for my IPv4 and Quad9 and Google for IPv6 on my system. I didn't check to see if they had setup IPv6 but since they are I will switch out Google for them.

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

In case anyone is unsure how to set this up...

https://developers.cloudflare.com/1.1.1.1/setting-up-1.1.1.1/router/ says to add these:

  • 1.1.1.1
  • 1.0.0.1
  • 2606:4700:4700:1111
  • 2606:4700:4700:1001

https://kb.netgear.com/30510/How-do-I-set-static-DNS-servers-on-my-NETGEAR-router tells where to add the first two, which are IPv4, but the last two are optional and only needed if you're doing IPv6, for which a screenshot is attached.

Re: Using DNS 1.1.1.1

Yeah, I use Cloudflare's and Google's DNS servers for DNS, set on the router. No issues.
