    Hi there,

    While my internet is working just fine, I keep on getting the above error message when trying to start the download for the firmware update on my iPad. Any
    advice please?

    Thanks

    Hmmm, I managed to eventually get a download selection box, but now my download keeps failing. Oh well...

    Some people find it helps to (temporarily) turn off their firewall and/or virus protection. Be sure to turn it back on afterwards.

    Also, the download only option (instead of download and update) has a better record of success.

    I tried doing that (I have the same problem) it still doesn't work for me. I was trying to find the file on the Internet but couldn't locate 4.3.5 anywhere to manually put it on the iPad.

    Sent from my iPad with no flash :(

    Yes, my pc firewall regularly needs me to add certain sites (iTunes included) into it's 'allow' list after updates have been performed.
