I am an UK user and have had my ipad (bought in New York) a month ago.
Am loving it but the new software update 4.2 has been an absolute nightmare.
I have now tried 6 times (and it takes about 80 minutes each time) to download and install this on my ipad and each time it has failed.
I appear to be able to download the update each time and then it says "processing" and I then get a message saying:
"There was a problem downloading the software for the ipad "ipad". The network connection timed out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active or try again later."
This implies there is a problem with my internet but I ran diagnosis in iTunes and it said it was fine.
So what is the problem? Very frustrating....
