The issue I am facing:
After configuring my second Pi-Hole on the same network, and removing the first (I had an 8GB and replaced it after looking at the traffic and usage with a 2GB RPi) I am only getting 1/4 of the traffic I had before.
Details about my system:
RPi 4b 2Gb using the 64 Bit RPi OS. I have a static IP address set aside outside the router's DHCP range. 192..168.0.5
I have a TP-Link Archer C-4000 router, version 2. There are two settings within the router for DNS an upstream for the internet, and a DNS within the WiFi network settings. The upstream is OpenDNS, the WiFi is the Pi-Hole.
What I have changed since installing Pi-hole:
The only thing that changed was the moving the Pi-Hole IP from 182 to 5. I did this, because I did not understand the process with the first one. Once I figured it out, I setup the second Pi-Hole and moved the IP. Everything else is the same in the router. But I am only capturing about 1,400 requests a day v. the first Pi-Hole which was capturing about 40,000 or so a day. Within the first three weeks of the first Pi-Hole, I had one client that had over 188,000 requests through the device. Now this client is not going through the Pi-Hole at all.
