Devices to be able to connect to pihole (running on raspberry pi 0w) DNS
Multiple times a day, random devices on my network ( mix of linux, windows, iOS, and android) will fail to contact the pihole, and as such will lose internet access. This doesn't happen all at once
At first, I was having issues using pihole act as a DHCP server and thought I had a fix ,but it failed again, and that was such a hassle I just decided to manually point all of my devices to my pihole. I cant set this in my router, because the "admin" account wont let me (ubee dvw32cb). Apparently there is a secret "actual" admin account that will let me do that, but I haven't gotten that to work with what I've found online
At this point pihole is set up to act as DNS only
The only fix is to restart my pihole and my device in order to get them to play nice, and its anyone's guess as to which ones will go next
