Add/Remove Software claims there is no network connection


Hello, I've just installed Fedora 10 and am trying to add new software using Add/Remove Software.
I started with amsn. Amsn & amsn-plugins were found, 9 dependencies are found, but when I click install I am told:

"No network connection available. Please check your connections and try again."

Under more details, I get this: "Cannot install when offline."

Seems quite odd to me as I have no trouble getting online with Firefox.

I am new so I don't know what other info I should include.
