Sounds good.

‘Default’: Ad Blocking + Stealth Mode + Browsing Security
I don't like it how the default has Stealth Mode enabled.

The 'Default' should only be Ad Blocking and Browsing Security.

I've used Stealth Mode before, and honestly, its more trouble then its worth.

I love that I can put this right into the router and adblock the whole network. This saves me from a long delayed project of learning how to put a HOST file on my router.

After a bit of testing, Adguard DNS does the job, however, it's pretty slow. Is that a geographical thing, or a beta thing?

Yes, it could be a geographical thing, that's why we need beta testing in the first place.

What shows "ping 176.103.130.130" command in your case?

Currently we cover two locations: US and Russia, but we plan to add more locations soon.

What about 176.103.130.131, how good is it?
Primary US server is in NJ, secondary is in California.

Also ping 30-40ms is not bad. The problem may be in the DNS resolution speed (server needs some time to warm up and cache all popular domains). As I see in the dashboard it currently has a 40ms overhead (should be zero when all popular domains are cached).

ping for 176.103.130.131 is 99-115 ms. Obviously this is the California server!

I'll stick with it, and help get more domains cached.

Ping times are slow but expected if my nearest server is in Russia. I'm in the United Kingdom.
Looking forward to closer servers.

Is there a place that we are discussing things that are being blocked that shouldn't be?
I have a home automation item that won't connect to it's server.

Can you add support for port other than 53 ? Like opendns/opennic.
Most ISP from my country re-direct DNS request from port 53 to their own server. (for blocking certain website)

Adguard DNS works great here! Even blocks those annoying video ads on my local news website app and CNN app on iOS!

Way to go!
