Annoying issue during fedora update...

Hi all ,

last night fedora came up to me with a message that there`re 24 updates available...
so i opened the "software update" and and clicked "install update"...
the problem is the downloading speed is extremely slow ... it actually has (0 kb/s) speed most of the time !

so i tried "yum check-update" and "yum update"...when it comes to downloading almost all of the mirrors give a "http error 404" and others give another errors...notice that i`ve already installed the fastest mirror plug in
i tired yumex as well...same problem ...

so i guess it`s a mirrors problem...unfortunately i have no idea how to edit or add another mirrors...

i`m using fedora 11 of course
so can anyone help me please

you cannot add mirrors, mirrors are picked from the fedora site.
