DNS over TLS, HTTPS verification

I'm trying to verify whether DNS over TLS and DNS over HTTPS is working in my browser on my laptop, on my phone and on my router. I have an ASUS router that I installed the latest Merlin firmware on it and setup DNS over TLS as instructed and when I use the Cloudflare Encrypted SNI test, It tells me that Secure DNS is not setup. I have tried several browsers on my laptop and get the same message. I also get the same message on my phone, when I have the Private DNS setting enabled. I have tried using the NextDNS mobile app and also get the same message. When I check the my.nextdns.io website, I get the "All good" message, but no indication of whether secure DNS is being used.

Any help with this is appreciated.

  • https://test.nextdns.io looks at what "protocol" it says. If it says DoH or DoT you are fine.

    Look at the difference between encrypted DoH or DoT and unencrypted in details in Logs.
