Deco DHCP Server is passing my gateway along with manual DNS servers

This is also occuring on my Archer A7 router.  I just installed this router and am running a pi-hole, but after renewing the IP, both my pihole IP and the router IP showed up as a DNS server.  Kinda defeats the purpose of the pi-hole if it doesn't respond fast enough and is bypassed.  Just thought I'd let you know it's affecting more than one model of router.

That is kind of a different situation as Decos actually have a 3rd DNS server that is not currently selectable, standard routers do not.  I would recommend starting a thread on your model specifcally.

2021 and nothing about this. It's happening with my Deco X60 too. 
 

if we only use wan dns then the gateway should be the only dns on devices. AND if we set something in dhcp dns, then only these dns servers should be broadcasted. It's a basic thing.

@phireph0x it actually very annoying

 

On default settings of router mode connected behind a Huwaei GPON router for fibre, my devices gets 2 dns servers one is the main router gateway and second is deco gateway which causes internet instability on devices.

I've manually configured DNS servers for my LAN clients through the Deco DHCP Server, using Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1.  However, the DHCP server continues to pass my gateway address as a third DNS server.  How do I prevent this?

is this similar to what u have been describing.

@mfritzen i believe this thread is not more maintained and I am also waiting for a response from them.

 

In access point mode will it again pick up the 3rd DNS servers apart from the default gateway.
