How can I get Quick VPN to use the correct DNS server IP

Right now it is defaulting to 192.168.x.1 (my RV042) I need it to default to 192.168.x.4 (Domain Controller).  I need to be able to resolve names because remote users will have to log into the domain.  I can not statically assign a DNS server on their machines because they are mobile, will be using WIFI hotspots and or/ wired LAN's at home.

The rv042 is obviously the router and server1 is the domain controller (also the DNS server for my LAN)

If I use nslookup to find a host it will default to the rv042 IP, so if I force the server IP in this case I get resolution with 192.168.x.4

C:\Users\XXXX>nslookup PC1 192.168.x.1

Server:  rv042.xxxxxxxxxxxx.local

Address:  192.168.x.1

***  rv042.xxxxxxxxxxxx.local can't find PC1: Non-existent domain

C:\Users\XXXX>nslookup PC1 192.168.x.4

Server:  server1.xxxxxxxxxxxx.local

Address:  192.168.x.4

Name:    PC1.xxxxxxxxxxxx.local

Address:  192.168.x.5


Everything works right if I could just set my DNS server to .4.  I came across many many posts from back as far as 2006 with poeple asking for this feature.  What gives Cisco???
