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 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 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:

  • Raspberry Pi Zero WH - the type of low-cost game-changing product Raspberry Pi's known for - the super light, super lean microcomputer we've come to know and low, but now with built-in WiFi. Comes with pre-soldered headers
  • Adafruit PiOLED - a monochrome 128x32 OLED with sharp white pixels. The OLED uses only the I2C pins so you have plenty of GPIO connections available for buttons, LEDs, sensors, etc. It's also nice and compact so it will fit into any case.
  • Adafruit Pi Zero Enclosure - Adafruit's classic, sturdy plastic enclosure. Keeps your Pi Zero safe!
  • 8 GB microSD Card w/ PIXEL Desktop NOOBS - the fastest way to have a variety of operating systems on your Pi

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+OLED. You can put it anywhere in your home or office where WiFi is available.

Great little kit for improving your internet security. I'm powering it from my internet router's USB port. The PiOLED display does sit outside of the enclosure/case supplied. You might want to ensure you have a mini HDMI adapter (I didn't have one), or a USB console cable so you can see what's going on whilst setting it up. I ended up having to re-flash the Micro-SD card for some reason. If you don't have access to the display you'll certainly need a Micro-SD Card reader/writer so you can configure the device to connect to your network before powering it on. The Right Angle USB cable - A/MicroB might also be a good option to provide power; I'm sure it's possible but haven't tried to otherwise run the device upside down and get the PiOLED to show right side up.
