You need to add your ISPs DNS server IP address in the Macs Network Sys Pref. Your router is given a DNS IP address dynamically by your ISP whe it connects, which is why websurfing outside of your network works, but OSX doesn't know about this. Adding the IP address in the Macs Network Sys Pref will fix things.
