I have a similar configuration to yours: RR cable modem, SMC Baracade, FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE and Mozilla.
I just called up WWW.CNN.COM and the first page came up in just a couple of seconds.
From your description, the only possible differences are:
I'm running 4.7-STABLE
and Mozilla 1.1
For whatever use you can make of this input...

I am using Mozilla 1.0 with FreeBSD 4.7. The machine is attached to a cable-TV high-speed service via an SMC Barricade router. I get IP addresses assigned by DHCP running on the router.I have tried without the router (connecting directly to the cable modem), and get the same results. When browsing certain web sites, including www.cnn.com, there is about a 90 second delay when I load the first page; subsequent pages are quite fast. I don't get the same problem with Windows 2000. Any suggestions, please? Do I need to enable a DNS caching server? To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
