What are you trying to accomplish? You will always get a set of mirrors
*close* to you regionally and the fastest-mirror plugin will try to
determine which of those mirrors that is.

You will *NOT* get back your mirror, even if that is in your network.
Well, it can happen, but it probably won't.

No. If you want to use your mirror, then configure yum to use your
mirror. For example by installing a "yum-local-repo.rpm" which
overwrites the original yum configuration.
