This sounds like some sort of network-related time out. Do you have
LDAP authentication, Kerberos, Samba, NFS automounts, etc.? Does it
always happen regardless of what wireless network you connect to? Could
it be the DNS configuration, whether that is the configuration pushed by
the network's DHCP server or an override configuration you are using?
