What domain name did you choose for your local area network?

What software are you using on the DNS server?  How is it configured?

Did you use a combined nameserver + recursive resolver on a single
host, or did you separate the functionality?

Plus, all the other excellent questions others have already given.
In short, you must give details.  All of the details.
