I am using pihole as my DHCP server because my router doesn't allow me to change the DNS server (Sagemcom f@st 5670). I am using a raspberry pi zero
The issue is that when i go test it, it doesn't block ads, but it look like my devices on my network are using the correct DNS (188.8.131.52)
Whilst waiting for an expert to give guidance you could try a little test. With a client that you think is using pihole, disable ipv6 and see if the situation changes. Your router could be advertising itself as a ipv6 dns server.
This will temporarily reset the nameserver on the Pi to bypass Pi-Hole DNS.
sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf
Edit the nameserver line to
nameserver 184.108.40.206 or your preferred third party DNS service, save and exit
and upload the debug log.
i disabled IPv6 on my desktop and nothing, still the same.
Your router is the DHCP server for your network, not Pi-hole.
*** [ DIAGNOSING ]: Setup variables
The router is advertising many external DNS servers, not your Pi-hole:
renewal-time: 1800 ( 30m )
rebinding-time: 3150 ( 52m 30s )
--- end of options ---
should i just do a reinstall? In theory to use the pihole as a DHCP server i just have to enable it and disable the one on the router? or should i also set up the DNS option in settings of Pihole?
