Probably due to it has to do the IP lookup for the domain name.

Ping the IP address instead of the domain name. See if it does the same. I don't like the DNS suggestion.

As you say, it isn't normal, and it couldn't issue the ping until it had the DNS reply anyway.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

What modem/router are you using??

Try about 1000 pings to the same address and see if you receive a high ping every few seconds.

It likely to be routers along the way determining which way to route for the next hop - the results of which are then cached in a routing table so subsequent pings are quicker unless there's a problem with the route chosen and then it will change.

That sounds about right ... from what I understand the DNS request is sent and only when that is returned does it actually send the Ping request.

Yep. Your router takes a little while to build the session to pass your pings to your target.

Once it's open you're good to go but first time there is a slight delay.
