That remains to be seen, many DHCP systems do not take the trouble of
feeding the assigned IP numbers to the DNS.

If you enter on the console "host your_host_name", do you get the
correct address? Wine may also do the equivalent of the command
"hostname", does that work as expected?

Try entering the wanted IP address and hostname in your /etc/hosts file
and see if that works.
