Fast Dial-Up - Slow Connection to IE6

When i click on my Alcatel connection, I get dial-up quickly. Then I click on IE6 and have to wait 10 minutes until my home page loads. In the bottom left corner of IE6 i get the message searching for freeserve.co.uk (home page), but nothing happens for almost exactly 10mins. I have changed my home page, but this makes no difference. I am using Windows XP Home. Any suggestions please?? Once the home page is there, surfing continues at normal speed, until I disconnect and then reconnect later, when the problem starts again. I have tried deleting cookies/ deleting files/uninstalling virus checker etc. Freeserve help line can't help either.
All XP updates have been downloaded.
