yum problem

I have a problem involving yum failing to download package data from repositories. 

For example

/etc/yum.repos.d# yum install ipw3945-kmdl
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
dries                                                                [1/1]
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dries/fedora/fc5/i386/dries/RPMS/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.

However I can ping ftp.freshrpms.net with no problem, and wget downloads the repomd.xml file
almost instantaneously. This problem seems to occur with all the repositories listed in
/etc/yum.repos.d. It only occurs at home; over my network at work (a university network) there
is no problem. I have switched ISPs (for a different reason...) and the problem remained.

As a posibly related aside, why does yum not respond to an interrupt signal sent using <ctrl>-c
during its attempts to download these files?

Thanks a lot for any help,
