Apache refuses to connect by domainname

Im using Apache2, and also running Bind(because I thought it would fix this problem) now on my gateway/server. My problem is that Apache will not respond to its name, only by i.p. Actually, its not that it wont respond, its that it refuses the connection when trying to connect with the fqdn. The Servername Directive is correct in apache2.conf, as is my dns, with the server(gw-server) having and alias(www) for the apache. Can you all think of anything that would cause apache to refuse connection by domain name?

UPDATE- I figured out its just a problem with my modem not being able to resolve the Domain of it's own i.p. Other people access my site fine from the domain name, I just have to use the internal i.p. on the local network.
