I had also the same problem when installing NetBSD. Pings took too
long to respond and sometimes they worked and others didn't. As I
think you've been told already, this is a DNS resolution timeout or
something related.

All of this problems where gone for me when I run named, the daemon
for name-resolution.


Hope this helps...
