I have a Pi 4 (4GB) with Raspberry Pi OS. I have installed Pi-hole.
The Raspberry PI IP: 192.168.0.5
The Router IP: 192.168.0.1
I set the DHCP range in Pi-hole to 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254 (which was my router's original settings)
The Router (gateway) IP address to 192.168.0.1
The router does not allow for custom DNS so I went the DHCP route.
However, my devices cannot find the DHCP server, they assign themselves a 169.XXX.XXX.XXX.
If I manually configure a static IP from each device, the device connects to pihole and works as expected.
What steps can I take to ensure the router talks with Pi-hole and the DHCP server to assign IP's on the network? *I am a new student, so having the commands written out to troubleshoot would be a big help!
