DNS resolution on 1841 with static IPs

hi,

I need to know that if 1841 or any other cisco router is capable of DNS resolution when provided static IPs on the internal LAN? Its like I dont want to give WAN DNS entries on the desktops on LAN for the DNS resolution. I want to give router's IP as the DNS entry for desktops, and enable router to perform the required DNS resolution.

Kindly advise.
