Try this command:
time host

Post the results. Here are two examples. The first is a very busy 
dialup, and timeouts are common. The second's on a good adsl line.
[summer at ns ~]$ time host has address has address

real    0m5.717s
user    0m0.002s
sys     0m0.005s
[summer at ns ~]$
[summer at echidna ~]$ time host has address has address

real    0m0.343s
user    0m0.019s
sys     0m0.038s
[summer at echidna ~]$

Also, try explicitly using your IAP's DNS. The box that does the dial in 
should have one or two.

Note probably won't work, change it to your IAP's.
