(free) DNS filter not working at certain times during day

Forums Service Issues Networking, Routing, Technology (free) DNS filter not working at certain times during day

    So I am using the family filter and put the DNS in my router settings.

    Basically the only thing I changed is the Primary DNS and the Secondary DNS and filled in the 2 free provided DNS servers 185.228.168.168 (primary) and 185.228.169.168 (secondary).

     

    But the problem is that for example in the morning at 10, in the afternoon at 4, and in the evening at 23 the DNS suddenly does not work. I can access all sites for like 10 minutes. Sometimes just for 1 minute, sometimes up to 30 min or more (didnt check). Also these specific times are not the same every day. Also the DNS could work for couple days, then suddenly it doesnt for a day or 2 (so I have access for a couple of minutes), and then again its up and running for couple days.

     

    I changed the lease time to an insane high amount this time. Have to test it, but I am wondering if I am doing anything wrong here..

     

    Also I have a 5gh and a 2.4ghz wifi signal. Does this have anything to do with it?

    Because of this issue, I am continuously checking if its working or not, which triggers addictions even more…

     

    Thanks in advance

    That’s definitely strange. Never ever heard of something like that.

    Do you have different wifi routers at home that your computers could be switching around between them? That’s the only thing I can think of.

    thanks,

    Hey Daniel, thanks for your reply. But no I only have 1 router, so it is really weird.. I disabled the 2.4ghz wifi signal and am going to test if this makes a difference.
