    I've set up PH on a machine on my LAN (docker PH) and when I point another machine on my LAN's DNS to the PH's IP (192.168.0.123) it works great for that machine (all ads blocked).

    Now, I want to add the blocking to all devices on my LAN by adding the PH's IP to my router's DNS (ASUS RT-AC68U). This is where I'm a bit confused.... o_O

    In the router settings there are 2 areas where I can enter DNS's:

    Which one do I enter the PH's IP?
    thanks in advance!

    The second one (LAN DHCP page).

    Pi-Hole can do DHCP for your network as well, advertising itself as DNS to every client.
    The other benefit is you set DHCP once and can reset the router as many times as you want. :)
