    Upgrading to ios 5.1

    I've been trying to upgrade for three days. No matter what time day or night I keep getting the "can't reach iPad update" server message. Anyone else having trouble. I am running the latest version of iTunes and have no firewall.

    Apple servers are probably down due to the high demand for the new ios.

    DNS is domain name system, it's how computers link to each other, each web address has an ip address linked to it and this is the DNS.......I think!

    Looks like you have some awesome tattoos going on Mary, how many and what are they?

    I seem to have a similar problem here in South America. I cant seem to connect to Safari, Itunes and the Apps store.
    I changed my DNS as my service provider suggested.
    I've checked my router and laptop and everything is in perfect working condition.
    However whem i'm at the office everything is working perfectly.
    It's just very frustrating.
