I responded in some detail before re your tcpdump. It clearly showed that the nameserver you were using at 192.168.1.254 was *failing* to respond to 1) AAAA queries and 2) queries for its own reverse address. > tcp_keepalive="NO" The default is YES .. any particular reason for using NO? > ifconfig_vr0="DHCP" > hostname="buffy.feline.cat" > # -- /etc/resolv.conf --- > nameserver 192.168.1.254 > > # --- /etc/hosts --- > ::1 localhost.home.com localhost > 127.0.0.1 localhost.home.com localhost > 127.0.0.1 buffy.feline.cat buffy Hmm. Maybe remove the IPv6 entry, you said you weren't using IPv6 but the tcpdump did show your box amaking AAAA queries. I'm still curious as to where 192.168.1.254 lives? In most cases this would be your local ADSL router, say. It doesn't *look* like it'd be the address of your upstream provider's DNS, but then there are some funny ISPs out there I guess. Is 192.168.1.254 also your defaultrouter? It's not in your rc.conf, but perhaps that's being assigned by DHCP? So should be, perhaps, upstream DNS server address/es? If 192.168.1.254 is local, it's misconfigured. I *still* must suggest putting the address/es of known good upstream nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf to see if that doesn't deal with your delay, which seems almost certainly a DNS issue from everything you've posted so far. If that doesn't help, show us 'netstat -finet -ra' and 'ifconfig'?
