Are the malware lists any good compared to Quad9 or OpenDNS? They seem to be using community ones.

Not sure for malware, but tracker block lists are good.

Hmm, I think read somewhere that if you want to have AiProtection enabled on the ASUS, you will not be able to change DNS?


No, you can have AiProtection and still use your own DNS, but Merlin's ASUS builds don't play well with NextDNS for some reason. With Cloudflare, it works perfectly.

I just ran this DNS speed test.

Yeah, I always see Norton ConnectSafe on there. And it's fast too. So apparently the DNS still works.

I guess they just don't add any security filtering.
