Setup is as follows..................
On Vodafone VDSL with Huawei HG659 to provide main wifi area. A second modem in bridge mode ( Linksys AC1750) connected by ethernet cable to a second part of the house to provide a second wifi area (different SSID and password)
The first wifi area feeds a non-smart TV with Chromecast and the second feeds a smart TV.
The plan is to get Netflix for both TV's via Unotelly. Where do I put the Unotelly DNS? First modem, second modem or Smart TV?
Very confused :-)

In your specially configured bind9 DNS setup maybe running on a R Pi.

Second modem should not need it as it will not be assigning things.

The first modem if you want all devices on the lan to use unotelly.

I have found that it screws with paypal and some other sites, get constant captcah from paypal if I have unotelly dns.

Otherwise on the devices. Which isnt any help on the chromecast if you want to use that. I would suggest you get a fire tv stick instead. So much better.

You will still need to block stuff on the router if you put the dns on the devices however.
