Hello,
I have pi-hole set up at home that blocks all connection to Google. The problem is for some reason the router keeps pinging to google.com every 5s. The pi-hole blocks all those pings but it's annoying since it messes with blocked sites statistics. Does it do this to check for internet connectivity? is there a way to change it to ping somewhere else ? My router is Asus RT-AX86 on version 386.3 of Asuswrt-Merlin.

Thank you

on dnsmasq on the router, just type in dnsmasq.conf.add address=/google.com/#
