Your internal issue is likely that your External router likely does not allow internally initiated to comeback into the network.

This is a protection on many routers that deals with prohibiting traffic from coming back on itself.

When you are internal hat is the output of nslookup www.mysite.com?
One remedy is to also setup an internal DNS that will provide the response to the internal IP for this site, while the rest of the publicly accessed that are not hosted internally reflected  in the internal setup of DNS.
