Default Strange issues with 7.2


Let's start first with this - a couple of days ago we had to change our ISP and now everything is configured and working, but however there are some small issue that I just cannot understand.

At home I have a FreeBSD 6.1 gateway which is doing NAT for the internal network, firewall-ing, etc.. Behind the gateway I've another 7.2 system which I use for file server, and one 7.2 Desktop system, and a couple of Windows machines. Everything is working fine, except for BSDs.

First - pinging a remote host from BSD systems takes way too much, than pinging the same host from a Windows machine. Don't know why but resolving hostnames under the FreeBSD systems is taking too much time.

On the same 7.2 desktop system I also have Windows XP and Debian installed. Under Debian resolving a remote host also takes a lot of time, while under Windows XP - everything is working just fine!

Just to mention - nothing was changed or installed on these systems recently.

The second thing is that startx on the 7.2 desktop is taking also a lot of time to start up (usually it was taking ~1 second to load, and now it's taking ~5-10 seconds!).

top shows nothing, expect that for a very short period of time hald was doing something - so I disabled it. Rebooted the system and tried to startx and then X couldn't start and I get this errors:

Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
I suspect xauth has something to do, but didn't figure out what exactly yet. After a couple of reboots everything is back to normal and on the next reboot it happens again.

Do you know what might be causing this? All BSDs have issues while resolving hostnames, while Windows machines do not..? And X is just waaay too slow now.. That's definitely something that I haven't come across.. until now.

Thanks for any feedback and sorry for the long post
