[Pi-hole running with internet connection]
[Pi-hole or the router loose the internet connection]
[I run pihole -d but give me an error when try to upload the log]
I have problems with the Pi-hole and my router.
The router it’s the one that my ISP give with the contract. It’s an Arcadyan VRV9518 with the ISP configurations.
I’ve already install and setup (3 fresh installs and counting!) Pi-Hole on a Raspberry Pi 3.
The problem comes when unplug the Pi from the power. When I turn on again, it crash my Internet conection.
This is the Device List of my router:
The 4th position is the Pi, with the DHCP mode and the IP set.
Then I go to the LAN section, and change the “DNS IP Adress” to “Manual” and enter the PI-hole IP (192.168.1.17) and save the changes.
I do not modify anything (DHCP Server and IGMP Snooping(¿?) are ticked automatically) Lease Time remains in 1 day.
After that, I go to the LAN DHCP settings, and add the MAC and IP of the Pihole.
With that, Pi-hole start working like a charm! Start blocking ads right away.
The problem comes when I turn down the Raspberry: I loose Internet connection and have to disable the Manual DNS IP Adress to get internet running.
And in the device list, the Raspberry changes the name to PC192-168-1-17 and the mode to STATIC.
I’m missing some configuration? Or is the router causing troubles?
Sorry for my english, I hope I have made myself clear.
