AdGuard Home

Ran across some people talking about this and comparing it to Pi-hole. They offer quite a range of installation methods. But this one is for running on a Rasberry Pi, similar to Pi-hole. Might give it a try to test it out.

So I took this on as a little project tonight. It was fairly easy to setup, more than I thought it would be and was way easier than setting up Pi-hole. I am really enjoying it. I will run for awhile and report back what I think. But at this time I think it will replace my Pi-hole. Also supports DoH out of the box, which in Pi-hole you have to setup separately. Also has great parental controls.

Really enjoy this program. Installed their mobile version on my phone as well, and went ahead and purchased a family lifetime license. If you are going to check out StackSocial they have great deals on their lifetime licenses.

So I am running this full time, and am no longer running my Pi-hole. Does about the same and actually brings more to the table in an easier to install/upgrade/configure package. It's also great for you that have kids at home.

I have been monitoring this since I have installed it and I am averaging about 30%-35% blocking daily. That just shows you how much nasty stuff is out there clogging your network up. Most of this is from IoT devices and streaming services. This is even easy to setup than Pi-hole so there is no excuse not to run this on your home network.

Did a clean install and upgraded the Raspberry Pi OS to 'Bullseye' from 'Buster'. Some help full tips:

When installing the OS to a micro-SD card make sure to select Shift+Ctrl+X and go ahead and set your SSH password here. This way you can just plug it into your network, find it's IP and SSH into it to finish the setup. This way you have a headless install and don't require a monitor or keyboard. Make sure you just download the 'Lite' version as well. After installing make sure to remove your DNS so that your traffic can get out to install AdGuard, and afterwards you can switch it back to your new IP.
