Allowing some ipv6 traffic in my firewall totally solved the problem for me. Thanks Dice, you rule!

Also check your DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf. If the first DNS server happens to be off-line there will be a delay too, it will take a bit of time for the requests to the first DNS server to time-out before the system will try the second server on the list.

Thanks for the tip. The problem was really with my firewall blocking ipv6 packets though, as you said initially. Thanks again!
