How to add clients to my Pihole?

Post by przemko »

Hello, I install pihole on my Rpi4 with Dietpi. I watch YT tutorial and after instalation I have to set my Dietpi server as DNS in router. What can I do if my router don't have that option? I have Technicolor Router CGA2121. Manual: https://www.inea.pl/files/obsluga_klien ... -09-21.pdf.
As You can see on page 20 on LAN & DHCP settings there's no DNS settings but at the bottom is option to add DDNS like no-ip.com... (that maual is not current). I search everywhere on router settings and cannot find DNS option. Is there some other way to add clients to my Pihole?

Hi,

simply use PiHole as DHCP sever and disable DHCP on your Router. This way, your client will get DNS setting to use PiHole.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Hi, I disable DHCP on router first and now cannot connect to my network. Do You know fix for that?
Edit. OK I reset my router, set DHCP on Pihole admin and then disable on router. Everything is working now great. Thank You one more time. You're the MAN!!!
