DNS not resolving


Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!

Expected Behaviour:

pi-hole should resolve DNS and return website to browser

Actual Behaviour:

Browser is convinced there is no internet. Seems to be forwarding to DNS servers but these 3 lines tell me something is wrong:

*** [ DIAGNOSING ]: Name resolution (IPv4) using a random blocked domain and a known ad-serving domain
[✗] Failed to resolve swissadsolutions.com via localhost (
[✗] Failed to resolve swissadsolutions.com via Pi-hole (
[✗] Failed to resolve doubleclick.com via a remote, public DNS server (

Now if I change my router to a public DNS server instead of pi-hole, the internet in the browser works fine. Also, I confirmed pi has internet, because I am able to ping IP’s and update packages (apt-get update).

Debug Token:




What is the output of these commands?
