comment Ping to LAN address takes an incredibly long time?
You can run strace and write it's output to a log file. You could do this: strace -s 2000 -o strace.log ping -c5 ..... This will attempt to ping a server 10 times (-c5). You can then review the log file, strace.log.

comment Ping to LAN address takes an incredibly long time?
I'd start by running strace ping .... to see what ping is getting hung up on. Additionally in another terminal window you can use tcpdump to examine the network packets as they go back and forth and fairly quickly should be able to see why the system is responding slowly when you ping. Search this site for strace and tcpdump examples, there are many that myself and others have explained on their use.
