DNS server in addition to DHCP server?

Model: AC50  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.9

I'm running my AX50 as a secondary router on  my home network. WAN port is connected to my LAN.  AX50 is running DHCP and is serving 192.168.0.0/24. I also have a pihole running on the same lan, serving DHCP addresses in 192.168.1.0/24.

 

Is there a way to either have the AX50 dynamically update DHCP assignments (as a delegate to the pihole) in the pihole leases database, or serve as a secondary DNS server to resolve the 192.168.0.0/24 assignments?

 

Ideally I would have all assignments (both 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.1.0/24) in the same DNS table.

Unless a device is on the LAN of the AX50 I do not believe it can do that or you can set the AX50 as an access point which you would assign a static address to be on the same subnet of the main network, and disable the DHCP server on the AX50.
