I’ve installed Pi-hole on my Raspberry Pi and don’t get the same behavior across my different devices.
I can’t change the DNS directly on the router nor want to use the Pi as the DHCP server.
Therefore I’m simply entering the Raspberry Pi IP address in the DNS settings on the different devices.
I’m testing this with 4 different devices and this happens:
- macbook air: works as expected, no problem so far.
- windows 10 pc: starts working at the beginning then stops using the Pi.
- samsung tablet #1: works as expected, no problem so far.
- samsung tablet #2 (more recent model): doesn’t work.
I can’t figure out how some devices works fine and the others have trouble.
pihole -t to figure out what’s happening with the defective devices I can see it starts replying but then no data is coming as if it wasn’t using the Pi to resolve addresses anymore.
Meanwhile when trying to see the difference for a working device I can see the logs flowing and everything seems fine.
I’ve no idea from where I can start troubleshoot this issue. I’ve already cleared DNS cache on all devices and even restarted them.
If someone needs logs to help me with this I will be happy to provide.
Thanks for the help!
