    Description

    A long time ago we made a Pi into a WiFi gateway that also blocked ads but the Pi Hole project does a way better job!

    This kit will make your Pi Zero W act as a DNS (Domain Name Server) The kind of device that tells you that adafruit.com is known as IP address 104.20.38.240.

    Except, when Pi Hole DNS is installed, it will do a special trick, when it is asked for the IP address of ads.adserver.com (for example) it will return nothing! So you will never even connect to the ad server and get the ad. Your connection will be faster, less data, and no intrusive ads. It works great on computers, tablets, phones, etc. Even if you cannot run an ad-blocker plugin on your phone or tablet, this will work and most ad-blocker-detectors can't tell you're running it.

    Unlike our WiFi gateway demo, you do not have to set up the Pi as your access point, you will only use it as a DNS ad blocker so it will not act as a bottleneck.

    We upgraded our Pi Zero Pi Hole with a little color display, that makes setting up clients easy and also gives you some nifty stats! If you want a kit with a huge color display for tons of stats and ad-blockin' goodness check out our guide and kit for using Pi-Hole with the Raspberry Pi 3 and PiTFT 2.8" color screen

    Follow along with our learn guide to DIY your own Pi Zero ad blocker

    This pack includes:

    All you need is a USB power supply and a USB cable (not included cause you probably have spares) to power the Pi Zero WH+PiTFT. You can put it anywhere in your home or office where WiFi is available.
