It sounds like you may also be having some trouble with your DNS resolution. Try changing around the order of the nameservers you have listed in /etc/resolv.conf. (or, try adding different nameservers that might be faster/more reliable.)

If you've got one nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf that's listed first and is no longer up and running, that can cause the slowness you're describing since each query has to wait for a timeout before it goes to the next nameserver.

*turns Internet-Speed dial from "turtle" picture to "rabbit"*

Sorry about that. I must have bumped it while dusting my MASTER INTERNET CONTROL BOARD PANEL.

Good thing you told me before the other internet users found out!

*this was in jest and not meant to pick on anyone*
