How many DNS servers are configured on your machine?  Is it windows XP home or pro? what is your network like, is it a domain, workgroup, home network? What kind of internet connection is it, an office LAN, dial-up, cable modem, etc.
Are you using XP SP2 Windows Firewall?

It sounds like a DNS issue.

Phone your campus helpdesk or visit their website to determine if your router is using the correct DNS servers.

Go into the Network Connections, right click the active connection then click properties then go into TCP/IP properties; list ONLY ONE DNS server there. Test your Internet conenction in a browser, then do the same thing for the second DNS server.

My guess is that one of the DNS servers is down or not working properly, so your computer has to do multiple lookups.

It seems to be only a wireless issue.   It works fine with cable.
