identifying device with dnsmasq.conf

The dnsmasq.conf entries suggested for routers on the setup page includes setting 


so that NextDNS can identify which profile to use when processing requests.

In the logs and analytics my router then shows up as an unknown device. I had hoped that the instructions for identifying devices for DoT and DoH would also work for the dnsmasq.conf setting so I tried


but this does not work. The setup page said something to the effect that my device was not using a profile.

Can this be improved upon on the server side?

    It’s just not possible to get dnsmasq to do what you want. Are there no alternatives to dnsmasq available? Otherwise you just have to accept the unknown device in the logs.
