I can't remember if you have the mirrorselect program on the install cd.... do you?

If you do you can run
Code:
mirrorselect -i -o >> /etc/make.conf
and pick your mirrors

What do you mean by "your Internet is working"?
Just because you can for example ping an IP address doesn't mean that DNS resolution is working. Did you configure /etc/resolv.conf properly? To check whether DNS resolution is working, try
Code:
ping google.com
If you get an "unknown host" error, /etc/resolv.conf is set up incorrectly.
