You need a DNS regardless of the method you use to connect to the internet.

You are almost certainly getting your IP address set automatically via dhcp
from your ISP. dhcp *can* also set up your DNS IP address(es) automatically
but this depends on how things are configured.

You need to either configure your system to get DNS IP addresses via dhcp or
define them yourself.
