How to set my WiFi region ?

I presume it defaults to US, as it has the +20 option ?
I'm in UK, and missing a couple of channels... how do I change this please ?

Idiots guide to cli wanted !

So, as you guessed... I'm pretty new to all this, over the past week I've flashed my tplink 3600 to gargoyle, and eventually got my raspberry pi ad blocker working with it. I've used winscp to alter the configuration files, but I'm sure this is a clumsy way of doing things? I presume I'm the only on...

Re: Noob - go easy ;-)

My pi is now racking up thousands of blacklisted stuff that wasn't there before :?

I'd like to revert to stock on my tplink 3600... just to troubleshoot the pi
How would I do this please ?

Re: Noob - go easy ;-)

Early days, but may have cracked it 8-)

/etc/dnsmasq.conf
dhcp-option=6,ipaddress1 (address of the pi)

Seems to be working... YAYYY Ill give it a day or two, but ill stop pulling hair for now.

MANY thanks

Re: Noob - go easy ;-)

I can't help you any further because I don't have a PiHole to test with. This is your journey. I think you were on to something with "advertising" and "option 6" but I can't see either of them in the configurations Thanks for the help though... this is quite a learning curve !

Re: Noob - go easy ;-)

OK, I'm gonna need spoon feeding here... setup putty to connect, but am getting nowhere with this :-(
Never used anything like this before... read several pages on several sites, and it's all Greek to me !
Just need the pi to log the devices ips, and not the router ip.

Re: Noob - go easy ;-)

Day 2.

Successfully upgraded to 1.9.2 :D

Configuration was a lot quicker this time ;-)

According to my devices, the pi IS being used as the DNS, but still reporting everything as the router IP .

Have to dig further into the command line... but little confidence here.

Thanks for the input guys !

Noob - go easy ;-)

Hi Guys, yesterday installed Gargoyle onto my TPlink 3600... v1.6.2 Can I update this version, or is this the latest my router supports ??? Also, I am using a raspberry pi as an ad blocker... on the original TPlink firmware each ad blocked revealed the originating devices IP address... now on Gargoy...
