    I had similar issues on the Gold and it turned out I ran out of disk space. That happened after months of PiHole running but you are saying this is “immediate”.

    Yes, its immediate.  At the most, it occurs within an hour of rebooting the Firewalla. There's a note in the tutorial that mentions disk space being a potential issue, but I cant imagine running out of disk space that soon in the install process - especially with no configuration being done post install.

    But I think I discovered what the issue is.  I was connected to my work VPN at the time. When connected, Im unable to get to the Pi-hole admin or SSH to the box.  As soon as I disconnected, its fine again.  I only discovered this when I changed machines earlier this evening and decided to run a test to see if I was having the same issue.  The thought of the VPN somehow being in conflict never crossed my mind.  I even checked other adblockers I had running, which I thought i had off.  Im just glad it was my own ineptitude that was the issue and not something weird.
