This solution worked for me as well. I was experiencing slow pings, email connections, etc. after installing Feisty. Editing /etc/nsswitch.conf with,
 hosts: files dns

seems to have resolved all these issues.

I did not notice any slow down with Edgy. I checked /etc/nsswitch.conf in my Edgy, strangely it looks same as Feisty with,
  hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

Any explanation on why this worked fine in Edgy and not in Feisty?

Thanks for the help,
Jaya
