I'm thinking this has to be a problem with your IP address. Try changing it to 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 and see if that helps.
By the way, the fact that you're getting DNS resolution indicates the DNS forwarding is working correctly. You'd get an error saying the host could not be resolved if you were having DNS problems.

There are so many variables in DNS setup. The first thing you should do, BTW, is to use proper class IPs like 192.168.0.x
The best solution that I have found is to install Bind-PE on the machine running LS. Then, indicate the IP of that machine as the DNS for all clients on the network.
Bind-PE is free at ntcanuck.com. It's also nitwit proof and, in my case, considerably faster than my ISP's DNS particularly on RDNS which is done on every incoming email.
