Re: PiVPN - Connects, But Very Slow Internet

So I changed the default port. It had no effect. I noticed the VPN works (err worked) perfectly fine on wifi, but if I switch over to 4G data only, data crawls again. My cell carrier assigns me a IPv6 address; assuming I use default DNS servers (no pihole DNS), would I have to configure the setup d...

Re: PiVPN - Connects, But Very Slow Internet

It's probably your isp, the 3b+ is more than capable of handling both pihole and pivpn. I run pihole, pivpn, and rpi-monitor on my 3B, and find my pivpn connection more than adequate for my needs.

Re: ad blocker

, you will need to be able to change your DNS settings in your router for it to work. While it is more convenient to change the DNS setting in the router, it is not a requirement. Changing the DNS setting in the computer(s) runing the browsers is equally effective when using PiHole to block ads. dr...

Yes that setup should be fine, and I'm running pihole, pivpn, and RPi-Monitor on a 4GB card.
These are the stats from RPi-Monitor for my SD card

Hello peeps. I'm just wondering if it is possible to connect to 2 seperate networks on a raspberry pi. I plan on the wifi having internet access but the ethernet connection being local only. Is there any problem in doing this?

Thanks for any advice.

Re: From wifi to ethernet on OVPN no more internet connection

This is a configuration issue in your pi not opvn. Did you give your pi a static ip address in dhcpcd.conf? If so you need to change which adapter is getting the static ip, wlan(wifi) or eth0(ethernet). If you didn't setup a static ip you should, your pi will get a different ip address on the wifi a...

Re: PiVPN server

piVPN is a server, so unless you have someone that is willing to run a server on their own network and expose themselves to the risk you are trying to bypass you will need to use an external vpn service either free or paid.

Re: dhcpcd hangs

A google search found this page:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/dhcpcd

Scroll down to "timeout delay" if you are booting your router at the same time, your pi is just asking for it's ip address before the router is ready to hand it out.

Re: Media Center + Owncloud + Apache2 + bind9 + Pi-Hole

Start with Nextcloudpi and then add plexmediaserver if your not happy with playing files directly from Nextcloud, then finish it up with pihole. Dietpi would be the least amount of CLI work since you just pick what you want to install and it pretty much takes it from there.

Re: cannot remove static ip address and gateway from raspberrypi2

What is in your dhcpcd.conf? The answer to your question is in your post, unless you set a static ip in your router configuation and somehow forgot about it.
# For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'

Re: Raspberry Pi Router not Resolving DNS

I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong, but I think your pi doesn't technically have access to the internet while it is acting as a router. It's taking the ip address on eth0 and sharing that address with the connected clients on the wlan0 through the DHCP server. So even though you are conne...
