Intermittent DNS resolution issues - UniFi USG

I've recently installed NextDNS on our router (UniFi USG) and keep getting what I think are DNS timeout errors. A website won't load, but when I try again 30 seconds later it will work.

I was previously using NextDNS but with a linked IP (instead of the installed resolver). 

Looking at the logs, some rows stand out:

Feb 27 11:49:33 UniFi-USG nextdns[2971]: Connected <redacted> (con=10ms tls=1317ms, TLS13)

Feb 27 16:00:10 UniFi-USG nextdns[2971]: Received signal: window changed (ignored)
Feb 27 16:00:36  nextdns[2971]: last message repeated 9 times

Feb 27 16:48:20 UniFi-USG nextdns[2971]: Received signal: interrupt (ignored)
Feb 27 16:49:25  nextdns[2971]: last message repeated 2 times

Feb 27 17:01:34 UniFi-USG nextdns[2971]: Connected <redacted> (con=15ms tls=241ms, TLS13)
Feb 27 17:03:36 UniFi-USG nextdns[2971]: Connected <redacted> (con=11ms tls=227ms, TLS13)

How can I fix this? I'd prefer to have the device identification provided by the installed resolver, but if needed I can go back to the linked IP solution. Anyone having the same issue?

  • Found more logs that seem to indicate issues. I was actually talking to Slack support about some issues when downloading files, which they attributed to faulty DNS, so this seems related.

      And a bunch more recent ones. I've uninstalled the service for now until there's a resolution.
