I had a problem that sounds identical and my problem was the dns look up address was wrong...
try doing a 'chgtcpdmn' and press f4, and then verify the Domain Name Server Address at the bottom of the screen

Most likley something not set up in TCPIP correctly and DNS resolution is
taking forever. As far as how to fix it, it could be a few things, but
start with CFGTCP and make sure that everything is set up correctly (domain
info, routes, etc..)
