    To join the domain, you will need to reach the DC (which should absolutely NOT have a dynamic IP address) - can you ping the DC by NetBIOS name and also by FQDN,

    Suggest you disable DHCP on the router and configure on your DC

      I assume you're using your router as DNS. Even if that's not true, since the router is also your DHCP, it should point the DHCP clients to the correct DNS server.

      In order to support Active Directory, a DNS server must be able to use SRV Records at a minimum (dynamic updates should also be available, although this is not a must, because you would then need to manually add all relevant records which is time consuming). The best option for this is to use the DC itself as DNS, and obviously the DC should have a static IP address.
      Cheers,
