You wrote that your router "does act as DNS for my Windows machines." But it's possible that your router doesn't have the ability to store name-IP resolution tables on its own, but instead, as a DHCP client to Verizon, obtains the IP of the service provider's nameserver, and simply relays to that IP requests the internal network sends to the router. Did you actually produce a name resolution table inside the router? Or are the tables only inside your Windows machines? For example, under NT/2000/XP, %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\ETC\HOSTS may contain the IP/name pairs for phoenix1 and phoenix2, in which case the Windows NT/2000/XP machine would not need corresponding information inside the router. But if your router really does have an internal DNS, then your question "If the router serves as DNS to Windows, why not Linux?" is a legitimate one for which I don't know the answer.
