Is that just for a wireless connection. it does not mention if it also works on a Lan setting.

Yes, it also works for ethernet connections. So far so good as they say.

I only use a lan setting on this computer. Tried the new DNS last night and cant say that it makes much difference.

Will stick with it for a while, If there is a difference I have not noticed it, But may be it will work better with a wireless connection.

I set it up manually and not from your web site so don't know if that would make a difference.

I was using Google prior to Cloudflare - no noticeable difference for me with respect to websites loading any faster.

After testing it on an older laptop I've now changed the DNS in the router. They state it's a more secure DNS and seems a tad faster to me. That might be wishful thinking though :) Happy with it and will stay with 1.1.1.1 for now.
