Slow dns resolution

I'm using NextDNS since 2021 at home.

Recently I have some problem that stop completely the DNS resolution. it's happens in the last week many times every day. 

The connection is ok because I can ping servers like or So I created a lab env. All the computers use NextDNS except one. This computer use cloudflare ( 

When all the other computers stop, the other works without problem.

I've already run the diagnostics tool several times. 

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Luca Zammarchi, that looks complicated.

    Try YogaDNS? Or are you using the NextDNS official app for Windows? Because is buggy.

    I was used to using it but after some days it just stops working, and I had to reinstall it, so I switched to YogaDNS since it's open-source.

    As far as I know, DNS is not used to ping an IP address because you are pinging an IP directly. So when you ping a domain, your device ask the DNS what's the IP address, and then it pings the IP address.

    I hope I helped someway, let me know!
