	I think Dave changed the default for 3.10.38-2 to avoid the negative proof checks, and that, at least on my system, made automatic DNS configuration though my upstream router functional again. I had the same issues as you with 3.10.38-1 and some earlier ones. So you might want to test the latest cerowrt to see whether that solves the issue. (I think there was some discussion of how DNS recurs or work differently with DNSSEC than dnsmasq, which operates as a forwarder.)

Best Regards
