Use the name servers provided by your ISP.
Is this a common problem with routers? I have a Netgear with the same name server problems. For my linux machines I usually set up a local caching DNS using the ISPs DNS as forwarders, which works great for Linux but no such luck for Windows. Since they configure via DHCP, it makes it a pain for a laptop. I thought it was maybe a Netgear problem, but maybe not. I was just wondering if this is a common router problem.
