I am thinking it is related to the DNS server, so I created A records inside the DNS to point www.mydomain.com to the IP of that machine, but it still doesn't work. I am also thinking that if it is related to DNS, how am I going to specify DNS server for the machines that are connected wireless?
Sounds as if your router doesn't support loopbacks into your LAN...

You can use any IP address or FQDN that points to your server.
