    Hello to all, first post.

    I had a problem yesterday with apps paid or free from app store "waiting" on my ipad2 screen. then after a while a "cannot connect to itunes store" even though I was connected via WiFi and logged into my account.

    Now I restored my ipad normal and DFU mode as I thought JB was the cause.

    But it turns out everything kicked in once my brother shut down his mac??? I did try a router restart earlier though.

    Is there a know problem with multiple apple devices / itunes accounts logged in to one internet connection / router?

    At the time 1 iphone4 / 2 ipad2's and a macbook pro were swtiched on and in use. once everything apart from the faulty ipad2 were switched off, that ipad2 seemed to work again?

    Don't think it's a problem with your multiple devices as the App Store was miserably slow yesterday for me as well and timed out a few times. And I've only my one iPad connected to a router...

    It seems ok now after the restore and my bro shutting down his macbook. He does borrow it now and again and have since found out he logged into his itunes account the other day to buy an app on my ipad.

    Would using more than one itunes account on one ipad cause a problem?

    Only when you are trying to update the app. You'll need to log into the same account as the apps that need updating before they will.

    Not sure how iOS 5 will handle this, but it will probably be the same.
