Problems with internet connection - Fedora 8


Hi!, first of all, I'M A BIG LINUX NOOB!
i installed it for a university work, and so far, a big fan!

but:
in the university i use firefox, yum update, install, pidgin, the works!

in my home (i have a ntech adsl router/modem), i only can use konqueror to surf the web. firefox just blocks, it won't even start the application, pidgin doesn't connect, and,

if i do 'yum update':
"[root@localhost DiogoFigueiredo]# yum update
http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: adobe-linux. Please verify its path and try again"


if i do '/sbin/ifconfig':
"[root@localhost DiogoFigueiredo]# /sbin/ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:B0:59:4A:2D

i hope this is enougth, if anything more is needed, please tell me witch command to use in terminal, ok? i'm still a noobie ...

thank you for your time!
