I can't access to the net using EdiMax router

I have Edimax BR-6004+ ADSL router with it newest firmware.
My problem is that I can't can't connect to Domains (although I can access to the net if I using the IP addresses).
I have three Linux computers
redhat 9, mandrake 9.1 and mandrake 9.2 beta 2 (which have Windows 2000 [What i'm using to write this] and as you can see the internet works perfect with windows) all the Linux boxes have the same problem).
My "resolv.conf" file contain 3 nameservers the first is "" and the second and third is the DNS IPs as they appear in the router.
I don't have a clue what to do now
Any suggestions?

I am running Mandrake 9.1, and my resolv.conf just has this in it:

nameserver is the address of my router. Maybe the loopback address being there is causing a problem?

I've always had only my local router's IP address as a nameserver entry in resolv.conf, you may want to take out the others.
