Is there any benefit to changing the DNS settings only on the Roon Core?

As far as Roon streaming performance is concerned, is there any benefit to changing the DNS settings only on the machine running Roon Core?

My ISP (AT&T Fiber) does not allow altering DNS on their provided gateway so unless I buy a secondary router I’m stuck with their DNS servers.

If you can’t do this, then you can setup machines to use their own DNS or even run a DHCP server elsewhere on your network if you have a machine running 24x7.

ISP DNS is usually slow, and takes an age for changes to propagate. I use Cloudflare, but Google and Quad9 are very good, too.
