[CentOS] Unable to access mirrors

Just did a fresh install of CentOS 5 x86_64 on a vmware virtual box. Have
done this successfully in the past but now run into problems with yum and
perl CPAN.
The error I get:
http://centos.arcticnetwork.ca/5.0/os/x86_64/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno
12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.

continues until it runs out of mirrors.

I'm able to access everything, ie: ping google.com lynx google.com is fine.

I've tried halting iptables (I'm behind router) all to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.
