/etc/resolv.conf is for the DNS resolving. Your host will ask servers listed in that file to resolve domain names to IP addresses.
If you get your IP address via a DHCP server then it will be set accordingly.
If you have hardwired IP address, as in your case, behind the router, and the router does not offer DHCP serving then you should set to the name server given by your ISP.
If your router can do DNS forward and DHCP serve, you should set so and use a dhcpclient daemon on the client side.

Hope I could help.

Code:
nameserver 192.168.1.1
in /etc/resolv.conf. You may also use your ISP's nameserver.
