Wow!! That's interesting. So I was correct. That was the reason why
pages took much more time to open.

It's a Cisco VPN Implementation and I'm using vpnc to connect to the
VPN network.

The ideal solution here would hvae been to allow all company network

internet in general) to pass through My Wireless Interface => My Router
=> My ISP => The Internet.
