When I use nslookup I get the error:
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.3.1: Non-existent domain
*** Default servers are not available
192.168.3.1 is my gateway's address (the router)
I have my TCP/IP settings to automatically fetch both my IP and the DNS
Doing some searching on the net some people say I need to create a PTR
record for this reverse lookup - but I can't figure out how to do this. One
article says there should be a DNS Management tool under Control Panel ->
Administrative Tools but I do not have this...
How do I resolve this?

You could start by posting in a networking newsgroup, where you are bound to
find more/better help than in this one for Windows Media Center.
If you are trying to launch the DNS console (dnsmgmt.msc), that is found in
Windows Server OS's where a DNS server would be running, not on a desktop OS
(typically, you would be running the DNS client there).

192.168.3.1 is a private IP address used for local Networks.
192.168.xxx.xxx is the range of addresses from your local home network
When your router connects with an outside network you have an outside IP
address, but your computers IP address with still be the one assigned by
DNS server (Your Router).
My Ipconfig is:
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.102
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
192.168.1.102 is this computer's IP address. The default Gateway for my
network is 192.168.1.1.
Those are not my world's view of my internet connection. I have another
address that is assigned by the ISP that the router sees.
That address can be seen on the Status page of the Router.
If you put your default gateway ip address as http://192.168.3.1 in the
address bar of Internet Explorer or other internet browser, you will get
the Router password screen.
On the router's status page you can see you world Internet address, Default
Gateway address, DNS1, DNS2 addresses.
Those are the IP addresses that the world sees for your computer.
