VELOP mesh wifi not working with NextDNS
I've had to disconnect NextDNS from my Linksys Velop wifi system, as after a few hours, it would disconnect from the internet and display a red light. I tried resetting, and creating a new DNS profile but still the same.
It worked fine for a year, and it works fine with other open DNS servers.
Has anyone experienced the same?
I am having the same issue. Signed up for NextDNS and changed my router settings from Cloudflare to NextDNS - it worked for a few hours and then couldn't connect and had a red light displayed. I noticed I could ping 22.214.171.124 from the router and clients on my network which had their DNS hardcoded were fine - only those that relied on the router for DNS failed. So, it is definitely a DNS issue. I am wondering if the Velop tries to connect to a URL that NextDNS block as part of their default NextDNS Ads & Trackers Blocklist. Will perhaps disable that and see what happens.
