Playstation 4 not playing nice with dnsmasq

Over the last 3 years or so I have used dnsmasq as a recursive DNS server within my home network. Using the below settings and the DHCP service within my SOHO router to assign IP address's and the DNS address to my dnsmasq server.

This has worked great with just about any device tossed on my network including Apple devices, windows machines, android phones/tablets, and a PS3. Recently I purchased a PS4 and when it utilizes the dnsmasq service no internet applications can connect (netflex, vue, browser, youtube, nothing) In order to get my PS4 to connect to the internet I have to either stop the dnsmasq service & reboot my PS4 or manually configured another DNS server under the PS4's networking settings.

DNS addresses assigned by DHCP service on SOHO router

Primary 192.168.1.31 (dnsmasq server)

Secondary 8.8.8.8 (Google public dns)

dnsmasq.conf

Code:
# Configuration file for dnsmasq.

# Never forward plain names (without a dot or domain part)
domain-needed
# Never forward addresses in the non-routed address spaces.
bogus-priv

# Change this line if you want dns to get its upstream servers from
# somewhere other that /etc/resolv.conf
resolv-file=/etc/resolv.dnsmasq

strict-order

# If you want dnsmasq to change uid and gid to something other
# than the default, edit the following lines.
user=dnsmasq
group=dnsmasq


# Set this (and domain: see below) if you want to have a domain
# automatically added to simple names in a hosts-file.
expand-hosts

domain=home.lan

# For debugging purposes, log each DNS query as it passes through
# dnsmasq.
log-facility=/var/log/dnsmasq.log
#log-dhcplog-queries
log-queries

# Log lots of extra information about DHCP transactions.

# Include another lot of configuration options.

#tune up
dns-forward-max=150
cache-size=10000

#conf-file=
hosts

Code:
#
::1           localhost localhost.my.domain
127.0.0.1       localhost localhost.my.domain
#
192.168.1.31 main

192.168.1.1 fw
192.168.1.2 desktop

Any help would be great!
