I don't know why you say that you can't use DNS with NAT -- it's definitely possible. Unfortunately, I don't completely understand how you've set your network up, so I can't provide any specific guidance. The best I can offer at this point is to suggest using NSLookup and Network Monitor to isolate the problem when it does stop working. Good luck!
