Why do you have the router listed as one of the five upstream DNS servers?


I don’t know what you mean

Your debug log is showing the Pi is not on your network. No IP addresses assigned and it can’t communicate with the router.

You are using 4 external DNS servers and the fifth is pointing to your router. What is the router using for DNS resolution?

The router is at IP If the router is using itself for DNS resolution, it is not using Pi-Hole. In the DNS section of the DHCP settings on the router, you shoiuld assign DNS of

You should also check that the Pi is connected to your router and has an IP address listed in the router.

I assigned my pi to dns 1 on my router and it still does not work
