Hi, I have a question regarding the new DNS resolver. I’ve been having issues connecting to it for a while now, and it seems that I finally got it to work.
Now comes the weird part.
For some background, I’ve recently changed the DNS settings on all my network adapters to Cloudflare because 126.96.36.199/help didn’t show that I was connected to the DNS resolver. This was not the first time it happened. I’d tried to set up my networks previously, and it’d always fail. However, today I tried entering the diagnostics section of the site with Edge (my main browser. I do understand Chrome exists, but it just doesn’t sync as well between my other devices). As usual, it showed that I wasn’t connected to 188.8.131.52.
However, this time I also tried visiting the site in Chrome. To my surprise, it displayed that I was connected to 184.108.40.206! How can this be? Does anyone know why the two browsers show different statuses?
I don’t know if this’ll have any effect, but I did exit the Edge browser several times and retry the tests after I did the one on Chrome. I have also flushed the DNS cache using “ipconfig /flushdns”, as well as from the Edge browser itself (edge://net-internals/#dns). This still had no effect on the tests.
In case this helps:
