This could be a DNS issue; can you paste here the contents of

/etc/resolv.conf ?

I am not sure how comfortable you are in trying some extra packages. If this is indeed a DNS issue, you could use a DNS cache server that will really help in any case.
You can search for "dnsmasq" and "cache" on for more info on this.
