Model: Deco M4  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version:

Hello everyone. I have been trying to use my pihole ip address as a DNS server for my whole network. I tried putting the pihole ip in the DNS WAN settings but the Deco changed the Gateway IP on its own making the pihole unable to connect to the network. So I tried putting the IP in the DNS DHCP settings but there is no IPv6 option. So all the IPv6 queries get resolved by the ISP DNS servers so the ads don't get blocked. Is there anything I can do to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

Hi, you could disable the IPV6 now to use the pihole.

As for the IPV6 DHCP settings, there is no plan to add this feature yet.

I would report it to the senior engineers for further consideration;

 

Thank you very much.

Hi, 

Did you enable both IPv4 and IPv6 on the Deco?

if possible, could you please turn off the IPv6 and leave the IPv4 only and use the pihole as the DNS DHCP settings;

 

Thank you very much.

@TP-Link Yes I have IPv6 enabled. Should I disable it? You know because IPv4 has been in shortage lately I would like to use IPv6. There isn't any possibility for you to add this setting? I'm sure more people like me would like that ability.
