Router should be accepting my pi-hole DNS server
When I go to my router settings (Netgear Genie) to change the DNS server to Pi-hole's DNS, it does not accept it:
So I click on "Use These DNS Servers" and then change the Primary IP to 126.96.36.199 (which is my RPi's ip). I have the pi connected to the router/modem by ethernet, too. However, after hitting apply, it says:
I don't think this is Pi-hole's problem, though. Even when I try replacing the ip's with 188.8.131.52 (primary) and 184.108.40.206 (secondary), it says, "Invalid IP address." How should I proceed?
