Some wireless routers come with DNS servers. Though optional, it is recommended that you disable DNS on your router as Winston already contains a DNS server. This can free up resources on your router. It also allows DNS changes resulting from whitelisting or blocking to take effect immediately, rather than waiting for your router's DNS server to pick them up.

If you do come across intermittent issues with connecting to the Winston Dashboard, you'll need to log into your router and apply as your Primary DNS server with no secondary or tertiary DNS established.
