Is the Draytek connected to the internet? It could be that if it's not, the metric for default gateway on the wired network is more preferred than the wireless. You could try to remove the default gateway on the wired network (if it's not supposed to access the internet).

What is then on 192.168.1.1 - what device is on that address doing the routing for you?

You should check your Event Viewer for any error messages. Without that service you can't rely on NetBIOS to do name handling, and you won't be able to connect using anything but IP-adresses. But like i said, you should be able to just add the DNS service to one of your 2008s.

And do you have the "Computer Browser" service running on these PCs? It's a requirement to get NetBIOS name resolution going. (Your other option is to setup a DNS server)

What kind of network is your LAN set as, Home, Work or Public?

Well it was just a suggestion, since somehow your netbios doesn't seem to be in order to do proper name resolution. Does this apply to all VMs and the host? Also, what kind of router/thingie do you have in front?
