Default Clients cannot browse but can ping any remote IP

I have a Netopia R910 router running DHCP to 5 clients. I can ping remote IP addresses from each of the clients but cannot browse or ping by host name. I can however ping by host name directly from the R910 router. I have also been able to browse from a PC connected directly to our modem.

What am I missing? Has anyone else experienced this before? Do I need to replace the Netopia?

Is there a built in firewall in the router?

Yes. But I haven't enabled it, or even created any filter sets yet.

Yes. I've tried both our internal DNS server as well as the primary and secondary provided by our ISP.
