Could this be used to connect a Pi Zero W to my Router for PiHole duties?

​Maybe, but if you Google the chipset and Linux support there appear to be a few people talking about issues. You might be better off finding one that's advertised as working with the pi. This price is good for an anker product but can probably get a similarly priced one that people have used with a pi

Think I'd go for these: aliexpress.com/ite…ZbY advertised previously £2.12 each and they work in pretty much anything

Gutted to miss it, was looking earlier today to try with iPad and usb3 lightning connector.

Great little adapters I got one from Flubit for about £13.

The need is that if the PiZero is to be used for PiHole duty, all the local area network traffic would have to pass through it and the only connection it could have to the router without an RJ45 socket would be WiFi.
Hardly an ideal situation.

Your traffic doesn't pass through the RPi when you use Pi Hole, only the DNS requests do which are miniscule amounts of data as in under 1kb. That said mines running on Ethernet just because it's easier to setup. According to the devs though wifi shouldn't really make a difference.
