Setup NEXTDNS on Velop Router constant disconnects

I setup my custom DNS servers directly on my Linksys Velops and now the router will lose connection sporadically and take the whole network down.  Sometimes it will go an hour or so just fine other time it can't go more than 10 minutes.

My guess is that the VELOP itself is trying to connect to something on the block list, but I have no idea?

When I change it to my ISP DNS or cloudfare it works again just fine.

What do I do?

  • Can you set the DNS in the DHCP section?

  • This is the setting screen, when I change it from cloudfare and google to my nextdns IP's I start getting the disconnects.

      JP Only advice I can give is to try putting in the NextDNS IPs in opposite order + in DNS 3 add cloudflare or whatever works. 

      So, DNS 1 - 45.90.30.xxx
      DNS 2 - 45.90.28.xxx
      DNS 3 - cloudflare/Google
