fedora 17 repository problem


My system is
Code:
$uname -a
Linux CSG.localdomain 3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon May 7 17:29:34 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
I installed rpmfusion-nonfree-release-17.noarch.rpm & rpmfusion-free-release-17.noarch.rpm from http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration by double clicking on them.
Then I ran
Code:
#yum update
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=nonfree-fedora-17&arch=x86_64 error was
14: curl#7 - "Couldn't connect"
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.rpmfusion.org/mirrorlist?repo=nonfree-fedora-updates-released-17&arch=x86_64 error was
14: curl#7 - "Couldn't connect"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: rpmfusion-nonfree
What am I missing ?

I got fedora 17 installed on my computer . Somebody else did installation.
I cannot find any window in which I can type in 'repository URL' though I have checked
rpm fusion for fedora 17-free
rpm fusion for fedora 17-free - updates
rpm fusion for fedora 17-nonfree
rpm fusion for fedora 17-nonfree updates
in add/remove software > system > software sources
