Xfinity with NextDNS
So I've done everything from turning off Advanced Security to manually adding ip's for NextDNS to my wifi. Nothing works and no network or Internet access. Any suggestions?
Please try disabling the "Use Ultra-Low Latency Network" option in the iOS settings or enabling "Bootstrap IPs" in the profile generator advanced options.
Alternatively you can disable Xfinity Safe Browsing feature, it is blocking dns.nextdns.io.
I too have xfinity… you can’t change the dns servers on home setup Alas you have your own router connected. On business modems it’s easy to do. Have access to both .. can confirm.
Guessing home, how are you trying to access nextdns? There are multiple ways you can do..
Straight on device like iPhone, nextdns app won’t work in home setup. You need to disable nextdns app on your WiFi ssid for internet to work. Then Add ipv4 or ipv6 next dns servers to WiFi settings.
Second, you can use 3rd party apps for setting dns (they are available for both iOS and android)
Third, On Pc/Mac you can use yoga dns or nextdns app. Follow instructions on my.nextdns.io
Also, If you are comfortable with terminal/cli version you can use your system as router. Just create multiple profiles for each device for clean logs.
Here’s 2 pics I took one of the “Threat History” that Advanced Security caught which I allowed. However didn’t do anything. The other is of my phone stating there’s no internet when connected to my home network using the app, manually entering in the dns addresses and also with the apple configuration profile. Any further assistance would be helpful.
