Disable custom DNS as an option when Eero Secure is active
I hit a snag with my Eero mesh network because I normally use the custom DNS settings to a private server I manage for my home network. When I enabled Eero Secure I could tell that a different DNS server was being used because my private network domains stopped resolving. The custom DNS was still enabled and configurable so I was perplexed for a while until it occurred to me the content filter was probably using a specific DNS server and had overridden my custom DNS settings. I disabled Eero Secure and custom DNS worked again. My suggestions:
- Disable (gray out) Custom DNS as an option in the event it has is already being used if Eero Secure is activated.
- Show an alert that Custom DNS will be deactivated in the event it is being actively used when a user attempts to activate Eero Secure.
I ran across the same issue. I finally checked at https://www.dnsleaktest.com and it showed the system using the eero secure dns servers which explained the results I was getting. I still have secure enabled, it was just confusing at first that my custom dns entries were not resolving and nothing showing in the app that explained it.
