I am completely new to this.
I believe I am trying to use the pi-hole as a dns server. I am looking to achieve whole home ad blocking.
I have fixed the pi-hole at 192.168.1.243
I tried to change the DNS name server to this IP address. It doesn’t do anything. I disconnected my phone and reconnected to the network. I then tried to block a site via the pi-hole and it didn’t block anything. Same with a laptop reconnected to the network.
Is it possible my current firewall settings are not allowing the pi-hole access to do its job?
Ideally, I would like to have it work on a small vlan before trying to open it up across multiple vlans.
