    Yes you can and you would go straight to 5.1 now. You need to download the latest iTunes on your computer and backup everything. It's a good idea to disable your virus protection and/or firewall for the duration of the update. It is a very big update so can take some time depending on what you already have on your ipad. Have a look at this link and it will show you how to do it.

    Is it my imagination, or we're we told that with iOS 5 we would no longer have to tether to a PC to update? Yet with 5.1 that seems to be the only option. (Or did I miss something?)

    You can still do updates on your computer if you like but they can be done OTA (over the air) also.

    The above post is someone coming from a lower version wanting to update to 5.0.1 and now because other versions are now closed they will go straight to 5.1.

    Did you forget to add the link?
    I'm downloading the update to my laptop now, they say it will take more than an hour and not to touch it.

    I had sent you a link with the instructions originally. Please see above. It does look like Leelai forgot the link, but the one I sent should help you.

    My link is in there, the vimeo link. Isn't it showing on your post. I'll check this out.

    I've checked it. I did put the link in and I can see it, but when I went to the site it's not there. Something weird is going on here!
