    I have been having problems downloading OS4 for my Ipod, but it goes for ipad and whatever with itunes it could be an app, if you land up that it downloads so far or it downloads to just the end and then it tells you it has had a problem downloading to check your conection and you get an erro message 3259 its a time out, the problem could be down to your computer virus protection, disable it for the time you need. I have never had this problem before un till with my network which is sky, i was with cable and no problems. my virus program is NOD32. If you have problems where it times out on itunes then try this. It worked for me.

    Turning off virus checker worked!

    That worked! Windows XP, using Kaspersky antivirus. I paused protection during the download, and now I finally have the file!

    Thank you!

    Thanks for this tip, littlebuddha. It fixed the problem for me, as well. I had tried several other tips that I found online before I saw yours. It was the one that did the trick. I left my Kaspersky anti-virus minimized in the tray so that I would remember to turn it back on as soon as the download finished.

    Network Connection Timeout during Update

    I have tried for over a year to get IPAD update but receive “network connection timed out†error anywhere from 2 minutes into the download to 10 minutes before it is done. I have a Dell purchased in 2010, Windows 7, professional, which came with McAfee for Dell installed. I have tried everything. I reviewed Itunes diagnostics and noticed it did not recognize me as administrator. Itunes gave up and told me to take Ipad to Genius to use their connection (drive 70 miles) to get the download. I persisted.
    I have tried everything above except upgrading in safe mode, selective startup, DMZ for port 80 and 443, and messing with the "hosts" file.
    Below please find everything that I did this morning to get the download:
    1. Sunday 6 a.m. "Check for Server Authentication" and "Use proxy server for your Lan" previously unchecked
    2. Attached cable from router to processor
    3. Flush DNS cache: at DOS prompt type “ipconfig/flushdnsâ€
    4. Disable McAfee firewall and virus scanner
    5. Right click on Itunes and select run as administrator
    6. Select “Download†only
    7. After download is successful go back and click on “update†to install

    Hope this helps. I do think the time of day is also a factor.

    I no longer update through the computer installed software or via the Ipad, if theres an update I go to the itunes site and download from there. Try this and see if it will resolve your problem

    Just go to the itunes web page on the internet and go to the latest download and download it, it will take off the old one and install the new one.
