Connection problems with Asus router and Merlin

Recommended Posts

I have the openVPN client on the router working but oly when I add a 2nd DNS server to the setings.
I have primary onnect to dns server 10.4.0.1
And the 2nd now to 51.15.98.97
If I use 10.5.0.1 as the 2nd DSN server as suggested on other topics the clien neven connects again.
I alway need the other 51.15.98.97  server or similar other DNS servers form  
https://www.opennicproject.org
But I can never connect without the 2nd set to a valid dns server.
How do I make sure my DNS request are also private?

The reason is likely because you're using a domain for the AirVPN server which means you need DNS to resolve it.  But you can't access AirVPN DNS servers until  you're connected to the VPN.

Instead use the IP address for the VPN server and you won't need to use public DNS to connect to the VPN.

@go558a83nk I tried to do a DNS lookup for the server nl.vpn.airdns.org and that worked:) 👍

s there a 2nd DNS server that I can point to that is also safe and anonymous as a fallback?
