why is my gateway's name appended on facebook.com (facebook.com.DSL2740B)
This is because it is defined in the DNS Suffix Search List (type 'ipconfig /all' to see what is set). This list is mainly for resolving hosts in your local domain (no need to specify full qualified domains).

To avoid this you can use the nosearch option or append a period (but I'm not sure if using a period is supported by Windows nslookup):
nslookup -nosearch facebook.com
nslookup facebook.com.


Regarding the timeouts there may be multiple reasons. There may be for example firewalls blocking requests (on your system, on the gateway, or even by your ISP). It may be also a DNS server that responds with delays due to high system or network load.

Did you never got an answer or is it working sometimes (especially after sending the same query again)?

When sending the same query again, the DNS server on your gateway should have stored the result in his local cache meanwhile so that he can answer without forwarding the query.

You should also try to use a known DNS server as suggested by Richard:
nslookup facebook.com. 8.8.8.8

This avoids forwarding the query through the DNS server of your gateway / DSL router to the DNS server of your ISP and should be therefore much faster.
