So I’ve got everything setup very nearly identically to various guides and how to’s I’ve found on setting up Pi-hole as a beginner. Felt confident in everything up until this point. I have a netgear orbi system that I’ve changed to only the Pi-hole DNS and I’ve reserved the IP it is using so it is static.
When I go in to real world test and change the router DNS officially to the Pi-hole or simply just changing the Mac or iOS device I’m working on to test it individually, nothing comes through. Internet seems to be cut off entirely. I’ve read through multiple posts here to troubleshoot it to little success. After debugging and reading through everything it basically comes down to the “Diagnosing Network” section saying IPv4 and IPv6 addresses do not match the IP found, which I’ve reconfigured I don’t know how many times now. Originally was using .31, now .56 however debug shows .31 when the actual device IP is .56. That and the gateway doesn’t seem to respond to pinging even though the numbers all are accurate there as well. At this point I’m not sure what to do.
Raspberry is running standard Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop for reference. Desktop is connected to wifi, ethernet is plugged in as well.

Thanks for whatever help you guys are able to give. I’ve enjoyed working on this, I’d just like to be able to show how worth it this will be to the family.
