Pihole should block ads
Ad blocking is a hit or miss.
I have setup my ddwrt router with method 2 as mentioned in this post
But the setup isnt working as expected… the ad blocking seems to be a hit or miss.
I have setup pihole on raspi 4B with official raspbian using official install method.
curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash
The other thing i have doubt about is the output from dig command:
When i switch off my pi, the dig command still resolves the addresses, isint the dig supposed to be blocked?
i mean when is say:
i get the following response:

I dont understand, how would adblocking ever work, if the name resolves using
Can anyone explain whats going on?
Does it mean, the dns requests arent even going to my ddwrt router, which should forward all such requests to my pi’s address?
