R6400v2 Firmware Version 1.0.4.120 DNS problem

Hi, another update in a row, this time with version 1.0.4.120 (1.0.4.120_10.0.91), does not fix the DNS problem (DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN). There are many threads on the forum reporting this problem for different versions and there is no fix again. It is particularly worrying that the new update fixes a serious security bug (https://www.tomsguide.com/news/netgear-router-circle-patches). So we have a choice of either a working router or a secure router?

Re: R6400v2 Firmware Version 1.0.4.120 DNS problem

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for Smart WiFi Router products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with General and Smart Wifi (WN and R6000 thru R6400 Series) routers. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:

Re: R6400v2 Firmware Version 1.0.4.120 DNS problem

some of the issues with dns were resolved when users enabled ipv6 and/or tried a different dns provider like googles at 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. 

did you try those methods?

Re: R6400v2 Firmware Version 1.0.4.120 DNS problem

Yes, I did. Nothing helped in both the current version and the previous ones. The only option is the rollback to the old firmware version 1.0.4.106_10.0.80

Yes, this is probably a bad subforum. The community is not easy to navigate.
