Can you add custom dnsmaq entry on the R7800?

Questions in the title. I want to setup a pi-hole on my network which my current router is too restrictive to allow. Going to replace it with an R7800 and the easiest method of setting the pi-hole up is to add a custom dnsmaq entry setting option 6 and the IP of the pi-hole. Can this be done on the stock firmware?

yes, but you need to enable telnet - go to http://192.168.1.1/debug.htm

Doing it via telnet's more than acceptable. Many thanks for the answer!

Note that dnsmasq on NG routers is not used to hand out IP addresses; that is done by udhcpd for IPv4 and radvd + dhcp6s for IPv6.
