How to install Unbound with DNSSEC on OpenWrt with AdGuard Home and Dnsmasq

Hi,

I'm a noob with OpenWrt and Unbound, and I'm looking for a walkthrough on how to install and configure Unbound with DNSSEC on my OpenWrt router. I'm currently running AdGuard Home as my DNS server, and Dnsmasq is only handling DHCP and PTR queries.

I want to switch to Unbound for DNS resolution so that I don't have to rely on third-party DNS servers. I also want to enable DNSSEC to validate the authenticity of DNS responses.

I've read the OpenWrt documentation on Unbound, but it's a bit confusing to me. I'm not sure what configuration options I need to set to enable DNSSEC and to integrate Unbound with AdGuard Home and Dnsmasq.

Could someone please provide a step-by-step walkthrough on how to install and configure Unbound with DNSSEC on OpenWrt with AdGuard Home and Dnsmasq?

Thank you!

Same question. Additionally, it'd be amazing if that someone could have the setup allow AdGuard Home to display client IPs/device names instead of just showing "localhost" for every DNS query.
