The radio boots and (if using DHCP) negotiates an IP address and the front panel boots and negotiates an IP address, so no surprise the radio takes a bit of time and displays various output while coming up. My 6600M does exactly that (although I don't recall any messages about addresses), but I rarely see that because I leave it running most of the time, and only reboot it if I have some reason (i.e. changing power connections, etc).
