Quite strange. The DNS client is installed and activated by default.
Nothing special to do but the configuration via /etc/resolv.conf

You may open a terminal window and type in the command
  nslookup

Ignore the deprecated message. You should then try
  server

The answer should be the same IP which you'll find in resolv.conf

Then you may ask for an address:
  www.duke.edu

and you should get the address 152.3.233.7 and 152.3.233.20 resp.

You may leave the programm by <ctrl><c>

Does this happen as described?
