I have had my iPad 2 since Dec 11, I have tried to update the software from 4.3.5 to 5.0 but have failed miserably. The screen on my laptop, which I use to sync my iPhone and iPad with displays this message after approx 50 mins of updating/downloading new software.
There was a problem downloading the software for the iPad. The network connection timed out.
Make sure your network settings and your network connection is activated, or try again later.
I have tried to do this at different times of the day, the apple store staff told me to turn off my firewall and then try, but that didn't work either, does anyone have any ideas on how to update or why there is no software button under general in settings?
Thanks, I am new to the forum and have had a look at some of the threads but haven't found this problem.
