I have an asus router with a pi-hole on the network.

I was doing some work on my server and noticed that when pi-hole was down, I couldn’t access the internet. I was looking for some ideas online how to deal with this, but they said to have a second pihole on the network in case one is offline. Is that the only way to do it? Is there any way to have the network go back to normal if the pihole is offline?

    Yes, your experience will be different if your DNS is being provided by another kind of DNS resolver. If you want a consistent pi-hole experience (and you can’t avoid downtime of your current pi-hole), add another pi-hole to your network and let that be your secondary DNS resolver.
