Can change DNS of ipv6?

Is it possible to change ipv6 dns? I wanted to put it from cloudflare and not from the ISP

I managed to configure ipv4 but I didn't find how to configure ipv6 because when trying to edit WAN_6 nothing appears

I changed ipv6 in Network > Interfaces > WAN > Advanced Settings > Use Custom DNS Server

(Using OpenWrt 21.02.3 r16554-1d4dea6d4f / LuCI openwrt-21.02 in RB750Gr3)

This works for me :


I thought mine would be like this, but nothing appears :frowning:

on mine it just looks like this:

(Phone and PC)

then in /etc/config/network

config interface 'wan6'
	option ifname '@wan'
	option peerdns '0'
	list dns '2606:4700:4700::1111'
	list dns '2606:4700:4700::1001'

and of course do a /etc/init.d/network restart after editing the file
