Wrt dnsmasq setup and local dns
I wanted to express my gratitude for this. It saved me a lot of time and effort. My DD-WRT didn’t seem to be using the Static DNS environment, which allowed my ISP to hijack some DNS queries (seemed like some DNS went to pihole, some went to my ISP instead). This appears to have fully resolved the problem, as well as the fact that I did not have to redo my network settings to use PiHole’s DHCP server.
I’ve been looking for this job for a long time but haven’t been successful. I tried disabling dhcp on dd-wrt, forwarding, and other stuff. I’m curious if anyone who was able to make it work could share their entire dd-wrt router’s key settings page?
I’m still using ddwrt and have it up and running, but with the latest dnsmasq support 4.0, I’m looking forward to getting more accurate reports from individual clients rather than having them all look like they’re coming from the router.
I’m new to the Pi Hole Set-up. I’ve got everything set up, but there’s one thing I’m not sure if I’m doing correctly. Do I still need to set DNS Server 1 to 192.168.1.2 under LAN in the router if I use dhcp-option=6,192.168.1.2, which is my Pi Hole IP? Or does it make a difference? In router dnsmasq, I set dhcp-option=6,192.168.1.2 and DNS Server 1 to 192.168.1.1 (my router IP). I set my upstream to Custom 192.168.1.1 in PI Hole, as recommended in the guide, and it did not block any ads. When I visited websites, the query did not increase. So, if dhcp-option=6,192.168.1.2 is specified, do I still need to set DNS Server 1 to 192.168.1.2 in the router’s LAN? Please accept my deepest appreciation.
How to block websites and ads using a dd-wrt enabled
This is a problem because when wireless clients attempt to resolve a domain that should point to an internal IP address, they often get an external IP address instead because their request is sent to 18.104.22.168 instead of the router for some purpose.
It appears that if you set the remaining DNS servers to non-routable IPs (in my case 10.0.0.0 & 10.0.0.1), your ISP’s DNS servers will be squeezed out. So far, it appears to be working without any lag time when waiting for non-existent DNS servers.
Allowing the router to route DNS outside of the ISP’s primary DNS servers is a common configuration choice for DD-WRT, which you have successfully done; however, since the requests are generated from the CLIENT computer, connecting TO the router, the order of preference is always given to the configured DNS on the client’s machine, followed by the router.
The client is associating with your router, which is correct, but their DNS shows your router IP + two other DNS settings, which is incorrect. Please review the client computer’s IPV4 settings to ensure that the DNS server configuration is dynamically pulled from the connection rather than manually configured:

The measures below are illustrated using a Dlink DIR-810L B1 router with DD-WRT firmware version 3.0-r40559. The user interface of your router is defined by the router version installed on the computer. The user interface of your router can differ slightly depending on the firmware version.

Update: I found the explanation below for DNSMasq Options to be confusing; it’s much simpler than it seems. Put the following lines in the “additional DNSMasq options” field if your LAN domain is named ‘lan’:
There are a few errors in the screenshot below. You’ll also need a domain=local line in there for expand-hosts to operate. However, since multicast / ZeroConf uses “.local” for its own purposes, “local” is not a good choice for a local domain. Strange results may occur, such as nslookup working while pings fail. Choose a domain extension other than “.local” for your website.
The above definition did not work for me (with WRT350N-15508std) (could resolve names in LAN only – you may check my topic). The issue is that if you use DNSMasq as a DHCP Server, the LAN Domain is already written into DNSMasq conf, and if you apply it to Additional DNSMasq Options, it’s added twice, causing the thing to go berserk (quoting frater:). Setting Used Domain to LAN/WLAN and not adding the domain-entry to Additional DNSMasq Options is the cleanest approach.
