Model: Archer AX12  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.21

Hello, I recently bought archer AX12 for my home router and wanted to use Nextdns as a custom dns provider. There is no option for DoH or DoT till now so I opted for Linked IP with tplink DDNS.

The problem is my router seems to be bypassing whatever I put in the DNS settings. First I set the dns ip in internet setting section. Next in DHCP section. Tried both too. But nothing works. Everytime after setting the IP I reboot and check for the dns server its using and I get my broadband DNS(Alliance broadband). There is no option to force fully use the settings provided either. 

Is it a problem of this particular model or am I setting up wrong?

Also is there any plans of adding DoH or DoT support in AX12 later?

This should suffice if you want to use a custom DNS instead of the ISP provided:

OK, so if you set Primary and Secondary DNS in these fields your internet connection should use these DNS for queries.

That doesnot work. After setting the dns i checked dns server my connection is using and it always shows broadband dns. Maybe its a problem in this model or firmware version.

Can you describe how did you test what dns server your connection is using ?
