Modem -> WRT3200AC (hidden network) -> WRT600N (DD-WRT, setup as a switch, wireless enabled)

I have a web facing server behind the WRT600N. I also have 5 computers (2 of them not too often) and one PS3 connected wirelessly to one or the other at any given time. Therefore, I will need to do any work on my network in the middle of the night.

So where does the pi-hole land in the mess? I will probably be using a old Dell Dimension C521 that I have stuffed in a closet for now. I would like to use a old Dell Inspiron E1705 (9000) laptop that I have but it has a x86 processor and I need a new power supply for it. So I'll switch it over to that when I get the chance, considering if pi-hole runs on x86 (I cannot see why not).

I just don't like messing with my routers, I converted the 600N to DD-WRT and then set it up as a switch just for my server. The thing is that I have never been able to successfully get any computer to use a static IP. It would be nice to get the server on a static IP I suppose, but it works fine for now.

But my biggest issue is that I need to replace the outlet that my network is plugged into.

You should be fine. My Dell C600 is only Pentium 3 1.2 Ghz. I have a Cable Modem /Router Hitron and a Belkin N300. Both are hidden. Hitron is 5ghz and Belkin 2.4ghz. I have the belkin firewall replacing my hitron because the cable company leaves ports open doing their spying as usual. I then have Pi hole not set to give out DHCP. The 5G Hitron does that. DHCP is also disabled on the belkin. Pi hole Dns is configured through Hitron, which gives out the IP and dns for my network.

This is my setup as far as routers

Hitron CGNM-2250 - Router 1 = 192.168.0.1
Belkin N300 - Router 2 = 192.168.0.2
Pi-Hole/Laptop - Router 3 = 192.168.0.3

Router 2 + 3 have static ip /w the mac addresses in Router 1.

Router 2 + 3 have DHCP Reservation disabled.

Router 1 has DNS coming from Pi-Hole (Router 3) which is configured in Router 1.

Router 2 has firewall dmz going into Router 1.

Whenever I need to give a device a static ip, I set it in Router 1.

Even though my Lans are separated with routers, Router 1 controls all static ip, dns, dhcp etc... because its connected directly to the cable.

Not had the time to test the updated slackbuild but did manage to get the web admin working.

The admin site uses sudo to make talk to the pihole process I am not a fan of it and not sure on the security implications but if you add the below to /etc/sudoers you will be able to make and save changes with apache and i assume the process is the same for lighthttp.

Code:
 apache ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/pihole
As for your network setup are they daisy chained or are both networks connected to different ports on the router? Which devices do the dhcp are they all on the same subnet?

Code:
Modem -> WRT3200AC (hidden network) -> WRT600N (DD-WRT, setup as a switch, wireless enabled)
or
Code:
Modem -> WRT3200AC (hidden network)
      -> WRT600N -> server
                 ~>  wifi pc etc

Whilst I have been tested i have installed pihole on my desktop (which is always on) then set it as the dns server on my modem. My PC and the voip box are connected via ethernet everything else is wireless. All dns queries are coming to me

Daisy chained just like this:
Code:
Modem -> WRT3200AC -> WRT600N
My modem is just a cable modem with one LAN jack and no WiFi. It's a Arris TM822.

The WRT600N is only a switch, but it does have WiFi Internet access through it.
I can connect wired or wireless to either the WRT3200 or WRT600 and use Internet.
DHCP is handled through the WRT3200AC.

I am thinking that I need to drop the pi-hole PC on the WRT3200AC.

It's the static IP stuff that I get messed up on.

DERP, Fixed.
Going to just leave that one out because it's part of the "automated install".

I'm not sure about the security implications either, but it is nice to hear that Apache is a option. I'll have to add your virtual-host config in there somewhere.

Did you also uncomment mod_php in httpd.conf?


About my network, would it be feasible to put pi-hole on my server? It is kind of a PITA because it is only running a GitLab instance, and un-bundling nginx is such a hassle. I've tried. Many times. I just cannot get it right.

Could it be because you are running it as root?

Interesting. So it started after running as root again?

I have been looking around and there are some reports about permission issues.
What is the output of ls -al /var/run/pihole?
