How to configure Pi-hole with my Binatone DT920W router


#1

My hardware

  • A macbook
  • 3 Android Devices
  • 1 Google Home Mini
  • 1 Amazon Echo

I have purchased this kit https://uk.pi-supply.com/products/pi-hole-kit-network-wide-ad-blocker

I have connected the kit to my HDMI monitor and Externa Keyboard mouse, for now, to set up.

My router is Binatone DT920w something similar to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2__wk_Yol8

My Kit is connected to my router via LAN cable. Both are on same Wi-Fi.

I have read this guide How do I configure my devices to use Pi-hole as their DNS server? BUT I’m unable to know how to configure my router to use Pi-hole.

I have these two DHCP related screens in my router.

And

Please help me.

Just put the IP address of Pi-hole into ‘DNS Servers’, simply replace the existing default value.

Ok I got ipaddress by typing

You have a lease duration of 72 hours, so if you did not renew the lease and flush the DNS cache on the MacBook, it will not use the new DNS.

System Preferences > Network > Advanced > TCP/IP > renew lease

Then flush the DNS cache with this terminal command on the Mac:

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

Your DNS tab on the network preference pane should show the DNS address of the Pi-Hole at this point. This example shows two Pi-Holes in parallel, with the IP for each.

If needed, this command shows the order of the nameservers that your Mac is using:

scutil --dns
