ASUS router

ASUS was so kind to set up a FAQ how to configure their routers together with Pi-hole.

They offer two kinds of setup depending on your router's firmware version. On newer firmware they recommend setting Pi-hole as DNS server for the WAN connection and on older versions for LAN connections. However, we recommend to setup Pi-hole always as DNS server for your LAN! If you do so, Pi-hole's IP is distributed as DNS server via DHCP to your network clients. Each client will directly send their queries to Pi-hole and will be shown individually in Pi-hole's web interface. Additionally, you can use the group management features.
