    I get a message that says " The network connection could not be established " for both devices. I downloded the new Itunes just fine. My internet works just fine. I have never had problems updating the software before. What do I do, I am lost!!! I originally thought the server was just too busy but we should be over that now. Thanks for any help I can get.

    I think the non-techie folks just woke up to the new software update. Give it a day and I suspect that the upgrade will go smoothly.

    Go to settings and then General and then software update. I just did it tonight. I didn't work the first time but it did the second

    I received an error message until about 6:30 am this morning, then the upgrade finally launched. Roughly 20 minutes from start to finish. Figured there was considerable traffic, and just kept trying.

    Same, SAme

    iOS 5.1 download failure is happen via phone & iTunes, tagging along for a resolution. if it's network traffic, is this an akamai thing?

    UPDATE: I love it, 5 min after posting this I get a connection and the payload is on it's way down. So folks with this issue, don't fight it, just wait :)

    Peace Out!

    Just updated my iPad2 without problem.
    My iPhone3GS first claimed not to have an internet connection. Furth I was later on told there would not be sufficient space.
    After deleting some apps and having 1GB available it is right now installing.
