    Download the latest image of Raspbian here

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/

    (Download the Desktop version because the Lite is command line only)


    To write the downloaded image to your microSD card

    follow the installation guide here using Etcher:

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-

    images/README.md



    Boot your Raspberry Pi 3 with the freshly flashed microSD card.


    From the Desktop open a terminal window and update your installation

    sudo apt-get update


    next upgrade your installation

    sudo apt-get upgrade


    While you wait for the updates to install change your keyboard setup to US 

    instead of UK


    Install the pi-hole software

    sudo curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash


    Installation Wizard

    Static IP address warning

    eth0 for wired connection (accept default)

    IPv4 and IPv6 (accept default for both)

    Upstream DNS (choose OpenDNS or Google DNS)

    Install Web Admin Console (choose default yes)

    Collect Logs (choose default yes)

    Make a note of the password in the summary screen


    Install cronjob GUI

    sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule


    Configure a cronjob to run weekly and check for updates to the pi-hole software

    sudo pihole -up


    To view and manage your pi-hole use the static IP you noted in the beginning of 

    the install wizard and type it into your web browser. For additional setting 

    choose log in from the left menu and use your recorded password


    Configure your home router (Gateway) to use pi-hole

    Find out the IP to the gateway on your home network

    Type it into a web browser and login with your admin credentials

    Find the DNS settings and change it to:

    DNS1 (pi-hole static IP)

    DNS2 (OpenDNS or Google DNS IP)


    Find your DHCP settings and make sure that the start and end IP range does 

    not include the static IP you configured on your pi-hole. Change the range if 

    you need to make a reservation. Usually setting start at x.x.x.100 and end at 

    x.x.x.254 should be enough if your pi-hole IP is less than x.x.x.99.
