It seems like ssh on your gateway is quering the external nameservers 
for a the hostname of the local client. 

On the gateway change /etc/resolv.conf to query no namesevers or maybe 
setup  a  local one. 

Then change the /etc/resolv.conf files on the other hosts to match the 
the external nameservers you're using

Also change /etc/dhclient.conf on the gateway not to request namerservers 

Possible setup for dhclient.conf
send dhcp-lease-time 86400;
supersede host-name "you're hostname";
supersede domain-name "you're domainname";
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers;
require subnet-mask, routers;
prepend domain-name-servers;
				-> change this to a local nameserver

This works for me
