I have V5 up and running and I'm liking the results. No one in the house has complained about something not working so that's a big WIN.
Currently I have Pi-Hole setup as my DHCP server as I was unable to get DNS working on my Netgear router running dd-wrt.
I ran into an issue today where we had a power and internet outage and things did not recover gracefully. Pi-Hole is running on a VM currently and it seems that even though the power blip didn't take down the VM the internet outage and subsequent modem and router power cycles has cause an issue with Pi-Hole not serving up IPs.
Currently I am at work so I am unable to T-shoot the issue fully.
The real reason for this post is looking at options moving forward to make my network setup more stable and better able to recover from power/internet outages.
What is the difference in setting up pi-hole simply as the networks primary DNS vs setting pi-hole up as the networks DHCP server.
I really like the groups feature as I have 2 early teens in the house and would like to keep this.
