hmm... couple of clarifications about my situation.

If I ping using a name or the direct IP the same thing occurs.

No other systems (NT, linux, 98, 95) experience this problem.

I doubt that it is a time-out issue since the problem occurs with our
local internet router.  A successful ping will return in 3 to 4 ms
typically.  Pinging external internet addresses yield times of 100 to
180 ms.  Both will fail on pings # 2 & 4

ping resolves the DNS prior to sending the packet.

The firewall logs show 5 ping attempts to the same address.

Oh well I'll keep looking
