How much will this slow down internet speeds? I have gigabit internet so that's pretty important to me. 

To me it speed up the internet because no adds get loaded. This is especially true with older devices and phones. I got same ping (12ms) and speed result in Ookla speed test with and without pi-hole.

Only the dns resolution is affected, your connection to the servers stays the same so you will still get the speed you are used to.

So will this work with only a static IP address or not????

Normal DHCP assigned IP will expire after a period of time. That means the IP of pi hole will change and you'll have to adjust DNS settings on your devices everytime it expires.

Doing a DHCP reservation fixes the IP to the Pi so it'll never expire.

Hey guys, saw the video, got a question.

 

I've been running Pi-hole for some time now with no real issues. Couple of weeks ago that changed.

 

Twitch app stopped working when I try to run it:

When I disable Pi-hole for 10 secs and start Twitch app again, it works normally.

If I whitelist s.amazon-adsystem.com app loads normally.

 

Is there a more specific whitelist input that will let me load the app?

I got a new one for you. I'd like to use Pi-Hole outside my home network but... I'm in a bit of a bind.

I'm trying to setup a vpn on my raspberry pi 3 b+ using DietPi, however my network topography is unusual and cannot be changed.

 

I'm living in Japan and the way I get internet is controlled by the building management company.

basically it's: ISP->building wide router->my apartment single Ethernet jack built right into the wall->My personal router->my devices

 

so I got the ISP IP 238.blah.blah.blah->building router 192.168.blah.blah->my personal router->192.168.1.blah->my devices(including the Pi)

 

My Ip address seems to be static into the building, but from there I can't control anything until it gets to my person router.

 

This seems like an impossible situation

I'm using double NAT too.

Can you set up a VPN server on your router? I think it'd be way easier...less hoops to jump through

In my situation, I set up openvpn server on my router, forward the required port on the ISP router, also set up DDNS so my router would have a domain name to resolve into outside IP

And I'm able to VPN into my home network this way

Point the DNS on the router to your Pi, done!

Hmm why not Squid? Its blocks all Nasty Domains and Url like: lmg.gg and other weird Domain Endings.

I got from Zyxel a new Router with Contend Filter build in so thats another line of defence.

DDNS was no problem to get setup, but setting up open vpn on the router itself was another issue.

I'm using a TP-Link Archer C5 v2. with the stock firmware version 3.17.1

unfortunately this router doesn't support DDWRT or else I'd put that on it.

Setting up openvpn on the raspberry pi3 was no problem, but ummm I'm kind of at a loss where I should go from here.

 

Any advice is much appreciated, this is a really good learning experience for me.

Dang Thor , You bought the wrong router and in the wrong country😉😉😉

 

Seriously, I gave you a link to OPEN WRT not DDWRT... https://openwrt.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c5_ac1200_v2.0

go all the way down . snatch up that 18.06.4 and see how that treats ya

 

Wahoo !!!     the GIT had some positive info:

 

"bcm53xx: add support for TP-LINK Archer C5 V2
This model also contains few partitions non-discover-able partitions we
need to "protect". Other than that it uses non-deprecated serial entry
in DTS that doesn't work with LEDE so we need to workaround it as well."


BAM !! how do you like me now? You should toss your boy  Rafał Miłecki <rafal@milecki.pl> a BIG Domo Arigato hes been killing it over there and hes punching up those kernels as well

Besides worse case scenario, Ya'll jump on your moose 🦌 ❄️⛄and come on down here to Houston🌞⛱️, I am literally looking at a TP-LInk ac1750 gathering dust. It is sitting next to a Linksys Wrt54G (The namesake starter baby) (You can't have that one
Anyway, We will swap one out with yours , grill🤠 us up a couple of medium rare T-bone steaks 🥩🥩 and a couple of ice cold beers🍻🍺, and send you home happy....Cause I swear... You Canucks 🇨🇦are kinda high strung 

Be Kewl

I've been using pi-hole for a while...skimmed the video and the thread, but haven't looked in depth here yet...but I do have 2 things I'm wondering if I can get help with...

 

1) image.png.32a6b64461cd91bec3754f74fce18cfd.png

Can someone explain these bits?  (I mean the obvious is obvious)...my memory usage seemed low, then I also installed a book server on the pi...and the memory usage went up..., that I decided I didn't need, and got rid of, but the memory usage remained higher..should that be there like that?

 

 

2)  I've whitelisted "s.youtube.com" ... when it was being blocked, I found that my apple tv and iOS devices weren't recording what videos I'd seen in my history and it wouldn't just play "up next" videos.  On a browser like safari, that doesn't have an ad blocker, it gets ads on vids midway..especially on Facebook vids..., and I'd like to find a way to fix that....any ideas?

 

(reading this back it seems like 3:30 am gibberish...which it is...hopefully someone can decipher me :) )

I wish I could help you . but at my size and with these mutations called thumbs I have to stick with the full tower. anything smaller would just be diminishing returns  :)
