    I didn't want to hijack the other thread so I started another.

    My first question is about changing the preferred DNS Server from say to the DNScrypt instructs you to do after installing and its effect on over all performance? When I switched to opendns, I noticed a nice increase in browsing performance so when I changed the DNS settings, I wasn't sure if that would cause any loss of performance (I can't say that I have noticed any loss, but was just curious, as I still have OpenDNS' in the alternate server.)

    My second question involves setting DNScrypt with my router, or future router to be more exact. Do you recommend setting up DNScrypt through both the windows settings and the router, or should it just be run though the router? From what I've read some routes have a dnscrypt option available or via third party programs such as tomato or dd-wrt so it looked simple, but wasn't sure.
