I think, your DNS server needs to know the association between interface
(MAC address of the network card) and the domain name, so other machines
can look up names instead of IP numbers. As the DNS server is probably
your router, you could have a look at the router configuration. Maybe
there you can bind MAC addresses to IP numbers and host names (including
domain names). If that isn't possible, another option would be to have a
DNS / DHCP server running on one of your machines. If that is an option
for you, have a look at the package dnsmasq.

For the host / domain name part the physical medium (wire / wireless)
