Fedora 11 repositories

I made a clean installation of Fedora 11 but yum either fails to update or the updates take so long i have to abandon them usually after a full night without progress.

These are contents offedora.repo :-

name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Debug
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

name=Fedora $releasever - Source
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KE

From that PC that is having the problems are you able to navigate to any of the mirrors listed?

For example$releasever&arch=$basearch seen as this is the only one enabled above.

If not, it could be DNS. So are you able to ping domain names?

You don't mention if this is 32bit or 64bit but here is a 32bit repo
