Hi all, I am new to this group. Last year I purchased my new iPad2 and have encountered problems trying to up date to version 5.1.
I tried using iTunes on my PC 6 times and it timed out each time. I then downloaded it using my browser which worked ok.
However I have had no success installing it, the error 3194 comes up every time. I have
Downloaded new version of itune
Remove all USBs
Checked windows is up to date
Turned off security system and firewall
Restarted my PC
What else is there for me to do before I take it to an Apple store?
You are having a bad time of it but this Error code 3194 would indicate that you don't have the latest version of iTunes installed, what version do you have?

Updating now will take you to 5.1 and the jump to IOS 5 is a huge one and will take some time and depends on what you already have on your iPad. Make sure you do a backup first. Try switching to a different USB port, turn off virus protection and firewall for the duration. Are you on the same PC that you have used for your iPad?
