I’m setting up a homelab and I’m trying to figure out where the optimal location for the DNS and DHCP server (PiHole) is. The network is structured like this:
The majority of devices on the network are connected via WiFi (Phones, laptops, TV, smart home devices etc...).
Where should I place the DNS and DHCP device and why?
- Plugged into the ASUS router?
- Plugged into the layer 2 switch?
- Host it on the NAS?
⚠️ The Xfinity modem is actually a modem/router device with WiFi disabled (xFi Advanced Gateway XB6)
