Poor performance with 2.4.1

    When I find something helpful I will post it.  This just isn't informative.  I'm still trying to get past "it brokted"
    I'm wondering if the ISP can somehow break this?



  • Just as another data point, I upgraded from 2.4.1 to 2.4.2 a few days ago and started noticing these symptoms.

    My connection is fine, I'm able to ping the gateway and monitoring shows no degradation in quality (no packet drops).

    DNS lookups using the resolver however, will occasionally fail for many seconds before returning a result. This includes internal lookups (static entries and DHCP lookups).

    I switched to the forwarder and everything seems fine.



  • I think that ISPs can impact the reliability of resolver.  I don't really care what anyone thinks about that.

    I think some ISPs are living in the 80s and 90s and just havent dropped some bad practices, like blocking all dns other than their own.
