[AdGuard DNS] Beta

I just bought AdGuard Pro but I'm not sure how to enable the DNS feature. I followed the instructions in the app to enable the VPN but nothing really changed. I went to the "learn more about AdGuard DNS" official site and found completely separate directions asking me to put in a new DNS to my Wi-Fi connection, which I did (why wasn't that in the app?). Yet still, no matter what I do, AdGuard's site tells me that I'm not connected to AdGuard DNS and I still see ads inside of apps. Am I missing something? Can anyone help? Thanks.

adguard DNS is a completely separate service, for devices that can't use the adguard app.

I suggest you undo the changes you made to your Wi-Fi settings, and then request assistance with configuring the app.

@Kvothe is it possible that you have other apps installed that already use VPN?

Also @thedicemaster is correct about undoing the dns configuring. With Adguard Pro you only need to enable DNS blocking in the app.

sorry, didn't notice where I was replying.
I have 2 adguard threads that send reply notices, and I thought I was replying to the one for adguard for android.

so my comment about YouTube doesn't apply to adguard dns.

Are the American servers still online? I keep getting really high pings in the 200s/300s ms. Used to be 25ms.

Does it still continue to be so?
Hi, yes the pings are still high for both AdGuard DNS servers, which makes Internet browsing laggy. Below are AdGuard servers ping times:





for comparison, below is Google DNS. AdGuard DNS used to be under 30ms before.



If it helps, I'm in California using a big ISP (Comcast).

Hi from Poland,
Generaly Adguard DNS work well, don't have any isuues with it. I have use DNS in my router from UPC Poland provider.
Please add some polish (Poland) blocklists to Adguard DNS, because there are sites with adds that still shows.
And finally keep up good work with it - it's really great service.

@Preston it is an inherent problem of DNS ad blocking that something extra might be blocked, not just ads, especially on websites like facebook or some google services. I am not sure your case lies in this plane though.

Could you please next time you cant reach a website enter the following command:
nslookup facebook.com 176.103.130.130 - if you use default mode, or
nslookup facebook.com 176.103.130.131 - if you use family protection mode. Of course, substitute facebook.com with another domain depending on where you encounter the problem.
