QUad 9 still being reported by my.nextdns.io
I have been using Nextdns off and on for a couple of years using the installed and the app on Windows10 . When I re-enabled NEXTDNS my.nextdns.io indicated that
This device is not using NextDNS.
This device is currently using ”Quad9” as DNS resolve
This is even though the configuration ID is correct. I have verified that the IPV4 does not have custom DNS #s in there. Neither does the router. I have even exited the app and used the NEXTDNS DNS
For the IPV4 DNS settings for the computer and it made absolutely no difference. When I did the ipconfig /all the two Nextdns DNS IPs show up as DNS. Where is the Quad9 set on this Windows10 computer?
It might be something to do with your router, you can set it up there and make sure that any sort of DNS Filtering etc on the router is disabled, I saw people say that they saw a random DNS provider and it was because of some Shield option on their Router. I can't say for sure but worth checking out if that's the case.
I discovered that if the DNS #s were hard coded for the computer and instead of using Brave browser which Is my default browser I used MS Edge and checked at my.nextdns.io then the page showed it was configured properly. If I blew out the DNS IP addresses and simply used the app MS Edge still reported Quad9 was being used.
I will check that setting in the router but going to leave NextDNS disabled for now since I lost all network connectivity after all this testing and had to reboot the computer. Right now its using the ISP DNS off the router.
@rob Thanks but DNS Privacy Protocol is set to none. I have been using hardcoded DNS in this Windows 10 using non NextDNS #. Recently, I noticed that DNS look up issues on some sites as if the lookup was failing and clicking on retry would load the page. As well YouTube chat for recorded or live streams would take 20 secs to populate. I have reverted to using only my ISPs DNS to see if these problems still exist.
I don't want to change too many things at once so I can have an inkling of what could be the solution/problem.
