Can Quic Cause DNS timeouts?

Hello, my wife and I have 3 eero 6's set up in our home. We have a mix of Android and iOS/MacOS devices. I've been playing around with Chrome's experimental Quic settings and enabling it where I could. Around the same time, our Android-based systems would start having network issues where the device would still be connected to the wifi but it would be stuck loading whatever it was trying to load. It looked like a DNS timeout. I tried a lot of things to fix the time outs - rebooting the eeros, soft resetting them, restarting our phones, changing Private DNS settings on the Android phones, and various other things. I've also tried turning off Quic on Chrome but the issues do still linger, not surprising if something freaks out on the Eero and doesn't clear for a few days.

Would enabling Quic cause this kind of weirdness on Eeros?

  • I have major DNS issues as well not using any Quic settings. Just a massive amounts of DNS timeouts in browsers, apps, and services.

  • feel the same way. Have a decent one!

  • The use of QUIC to provide transport privacy for DNS. The encryption provided by QUIC has similar properties to that provided by TLS, while QUIC transport eliminates the head-of-line blocking issues inherent with TCP and provides more efficient error corrections than UDP. DNS over QUIC (DNS/QUIC) has privacy properties similar to DNS over TLS specified in RFC7858, and performance similar to classic DNS over UDP.

  • I really want to know more about that.
