Whoops, didn't notice he used his ISP dns on chrome, just edge. In this case, there is most likely a problem with his dns cache in chrome.

How do you set it up to use DNS over TLS and HTTPS? Is this something I need to set up for every client?
DNS encryption via the router will be the best way to go as requests from all devices on the network that use the router for DNS will be protected. I say will be, since DNS over TLS or HTTPS isn't currently supported in just about any router. DNScrypt and DNSSEC are quite capable, but TLS and HTTPS is the endgame, as it will hide that you are even making a DNS query.

Setting up DNS over TLS or HTTPS through the browser is a relatively new thing, but I think Firefox 62 now supports it via manual configuration. This will also not be redundant, as this will bypass your router being the DNS, but for the time being until your router supports it, this will have to be configured on every capable client.
