Errors in fedora live cd when installing rpm packages


I've been trying to get my wireless working on the livecd to make sure its possible before I install it, but, I get a ton of errors when I install RPM's
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):

    return repo._check_db_version(mdtype)

    raise Errors.RepoError, msg
RepoError: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again

I didn't use any command, I have fedora running with no internet access off of the cd, and I'm double clicking the RPM which I downloaded on this windows machine and transfered via a flash drive

the error seems due to the lack of internet. please give the name of the package you're trying to install

use rpm -i packagename.rpm to install rpm and post whatever you gets
