Machine hang after connecting to ISP

Once I received the banner to say that I have connected to my ISP, my machine hangs for a period of time between 2 to 6 minutes. If I hit any keys they are remembered and eventually everything springs back to normal.

I am running IIS on Windows XP Professional with the XP Firewall active.

My gut feeling is that I am triggering a timer and have to wait for it to expire. It is at a very high level of priority since I can do nothing while it is active.
