Server 2012 DNS Server

Last Modified: 2015-09-13
     I have a small network set up using Windows Server 2012. I have a Comcast Business Internet connection. The ISP comes into a wireless Linksys router which is currently handling the DHCP. I have one physical server and 2 Hyper-V server 2012 set up. One of the vm machines is my DC. I have assigned static ips to all machines. I had some trouble getting the other two machines to join the domain until I pointed them to the DC for DNS. This cleared up that issue but then none of the machines could get to the internet until I put a secondary DNS entry to a public DNS server. What am I missing here? Shouldn't the DNS run through the DC and resolve names to the internet?

Thank you
