Cloudflare Launches 1.1.1.1 DNS Service

Recommended Posts

How can I tell what DNS resolver my R1 is actually using?

 

If I do a nslookup google.com

it shows the R1 as the DNS server which I get, but what DNS resolver is the R1 using?

 

I've entered the new cloudflare DNS servers on the LAN Settings page but I want to verify that the cloudflare DNS server is being using.

Sorry for the bump but I decided to run Namebench as I didn't know any other way to find out how its performance might be...

 

192.168.88.1 averages 7.94ms latency

1.0.0.1 averages 847.20ms latency

1.1.1.1 averages 847.76ms latency

 

WTF is that? Where are they even based LOL -_- this is a bit confusing because the top part shows my default gateway, DynGuide, 8.8.4.4, UltraDNS, 8.8.8.8 then OpenDNS-2. Below that the list is shaded in black with the notes "too many warnings, probably broken" for BT-8 GB, BT-6 GB, BT 30 GB and BT 41 GB; below that is 1.0.0.1 and 1.1.1.1 with the notes "a backup DNS server for this system. Slower replica of SYS-192.168.88.1".

 

However at the top it says primary 192.168.88.1, secondary BT-8 GB and tertiary BT-6 GB. What does this mean? Which DNS does the default gateway convert to? And why is it recommending "broken DNS servers" for secondary and tertiary? I swear I just read elsewhere that using the default gateway isn't even classed as a DNS server :/

 

None of the stuff ever makes sense lol

Namebench must be pinging a non local server.

 

I get 16ms to google and 10ms to 1.1.1.1 using ping plotter.

What's weird is I had 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 as my DNS servers set on the R1 and it says 192.168.88.1 is a "replica of SYS-1.1.1.1 and SYS-1.0.0.1"
