You mean you have a "router" in between or a switch?

Your gateway is a small hardware router? Does it act as a DHCP server
for the Fedora host? What is the content of /etc/resolv.conf on your
Fedora host? Does it have the same DNS settings as the Windows® host?

Maybe the output of following command is helpful:

$ dig www.google.com +trace

You can modify it a bit: first run it with the DNS IP listed first in

$ dig www.google.com +trace @<DNS 1st server>

and then with the second

$ dig www.google.com +trace @<DNS 2st server>

Then compare the runtimes for nameresolution.

$ cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.               localhost.localdomain localhost             serendipity.dogma.lan serendipity

That is for example the content of my hosts file. The first line is
important for the localhost (loopback) processing. The other line maps
my hostname in long and short format to my host's IP.
