It seems your DNS lookup is intermittently slow. I'd log into the
router/web gateway (192.168.1.1 in your browser or so) and run the DNS
lookup diagnostic test - if it is shows similar behaviour, you will
know it's a problem with your internet provider. I used to see such
problems in the past and IIRC they always cleared up upon talking to
the provider.
