To reach that mirror you have to assure that:

 1. You can resolve hostnames
    Look in /etc/resolv.conf for a valid nameserver;

 2. You should verify you can open a http connection
    Try to use netcat:  nc -v 209.132.176.120 80, if you get
"Connection to 209.85.171.100 80 port [tcp/http] succeeded!" so you are
able to connect to the internet.

That error message says it cannot resolve host
download.fedoraproject.org.  Try to resolve for it, using
209.132.176.120 instead.  Otherwise add "nameserver 208.67.222.222" line
at the beginning of /etc/resolv.conf file.

Hope this will help.

Cheers,
  Giuseppe
