DNS seems to fail using hotspot and usermanager

Hello, I have Mikrotik running HotSpot authenticating on Mikrotik connected to Internet.

wireless user >192.168.x.x-TIK_HOTSPOT-172.16.x.x~~~~~172.16.x.x-TIK_USERMAN-209.x.x.x

Without hotspot enabled I can connect and browse to any destination. When Hotspot is enabled I can only browse, by IP address. When I perform ipconfig /all the result shows DNS servers properly assigned? I am masquerading all internal nets, but must be missing something simple, Please help.

If your DHCP network settings deliver the Hotpot's IP as the DNS ip, then you must set 'allow remote requests' to 'yes' or ticked in /ip dns settings
/ip dns set allow-remote-requests=yes
