FWIW I have a similar issue which seems to be due to some sort of DNS
lookup problem.  In my case I'd get the 'Name or service not known' for
download1.rpmfusion.org.

My /etc/nsswitch.conf file says to use files and dns

The /etc/resolv.conf is setup properly

I tried disabling ipv6 completely but the symptoms stay the same

ping and firefox seem to resolve the addresses correctly, but wget and
ssh do not

The failures occur for only some sites (like linuxdownload.adobe.com
and download1.rpmfusion.org) but do not occur with others
(like download.fedoraproject.org iirc).  The failures consistently
occur for the same sites
 
Putting the IP addresses in /etc/hosts "works around" the problem

No idea what's going on...
