Flush DNS


  • Will be nice to have an option to flush the DNS or to decrease the time it flushes
    the only moment that i need to reboot the router is to flush the DNS


  • @Christian-Broce Not sure if the Alien's use DNS caching... I run two home built DNS servers (pi-hole+unbound) and have my Alien pointed only to those DNS servers... when I make a change in pi-hole, it's instantly reflected. Having a DNS cache in the router would suggest that these changes wouldn't take effect immediately. Though, an Amplifi engineer would need to confirm this.


  • If you enable 'Receive BETA Firmware Updates' in the web UI it will expose Special Commands on the Beta Options page, one of which being Restart DNS Server
    This may achieve the flushing that you are looking for

    As for caching, the web UI option to 'Bypass DNS Cache - Use Upstream DNS for DHCP Clients' implies some form of caching may be taking place and how amplifi.lan is implemented, although many users enable this option when implementing a pi-hole


  • @Christian-Broce You Right 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
