I also setup one of these last week, seems to be working well. I used the older Raspberry Pi B model. Also setting router DNS to the Raspberry Pi ip address is a good option. Makes it easier than setting DNS on each device.

It can indeed. Pi-hole does come with a full DHCP server.

yeah that would be handy. I don't even need a authentication or PPPoE, just auto detect for connecting the WAN from the NTD. So for me I only need routing and DHCP for the LAN side as well as port forwarding for game servers I occasionally run.

My router plays up sometimes needing a reboot and usually does a 2-3 times consecutively, the internet sometimes halts but there is no issues on the surface. A reboot or few fixes the problem.

For anyone interested in blocking porn using the Pi-Hole, this may be useful.
