Expected Behavior is, Pi-Hole should work on all device connected to the wifi router.
Actual Behaviour: All the devices that connected are working as expected but one mobile device is some how bypassing the Pi-hole setup.
Device Lists, that are working:
2 Oneplus Mobile device
OnePlus 7T Pro. Debug Token:
How can we correct this entry (IPV4_ADDRESS=), its from my old router.
*** [ DIAGNOSING ]: Setup variables
pihole -r reconfigure.
How do you distribute pihole's IP to the clients? DHCP or do you configure them manually?
If by DHCP: you have to dis/reconnect the clients from your network once to pickup the (new?) DHCP settings.
IPs are distributed via router's DHCP.
One more thing,
When I was using my Old router, pihole query logs were showing IP addresses of individual devices. Now it shows 192.168.0.1 (router's IP) only for all the queries.
Any reason why its behaving like that. And how can I change it to show assigned device's IP.
Note: using router's DHCP
Router : Netgear R7000
As you describe it, your router is distributing it's own IP as DNS server via DHCP to the clients.
From a quick search, you can't change the IP distributed as local DNS server to something else (you would want to distribute Pihole's IP).
Hi, I'm running a Nighthawk R7000 with stock firmware (V18.104.22.168_1.1.83). It is configured as a router and also runs a DHCP server. However, currently the DHCP server hands out the routers IP as the only DNS server and for some reason this DNS...
Your'r only option seems to be to disable DHCP on your router and use Pihole as DHCP server if you want to see each individual client in the query log.
Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!
Pi-hole can resolve and separate client traffic
I have a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 acting as my router and DHCP server, with a hardwired RPi running PiHole. I have set the router to use the RPi as the primary DNS server (I'm using the Netgear genie software). Everything works great, except...
The Query log only lists my router, which makes some sense (as all traffic is sent from it). I lived …
