How can I get FreeBSD to query the router for IP information for other machines?

Your question isn't very clear, but if you want to configure FreeBSD to use a nameserver on your router (or elsewhere), set up /etc/ resolv.conf. Otherwise, FreeBSD will issue ARP queries to locate other machines on the local subnet. Normally, the machine itself will reply, but it's certainly possible for other devices to publish that info (via proxy-arping; see "man arp").
