    Try getting the software (the IPSW file) from another place. Such as here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html

    Just make sure you download the correct one for your specific iPad.

    Don't use Internet Explorer to download it to your computer, use another browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc). For some reason, IE doesn't play well in downloading IPSWs.

    Once you have the iOS, you'll have to put your iPad in DFU mode to use to restore. See this for instructions on DFU mode: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/27489-dfu-mode-dummies.html

    Once you are in DFU mode, open iTunes. It will recognize your iPad as needing recovery. Accept the prompt and you will get the main Summary page for the iPad. Press and hold the Shift key (on a Windows machine; the Option key on a Mac). While holding down the key, click on the Restore button in iTunes.

    That should do it. iTunes will start up its magic and, after some prompts, you will end up with an iPad running iOS 6.1.

    Yes, it's a bit more of a convoluted way of doing the upgrade - but sometimes, iTunes just can't communicate properly with Apple's servers to get the IPSW in good shape. It happens. This is a way around it.

    Good luck and holler back if you need more.

    1.Turn off your device. If you can't turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time and wait a few seconds for it to turn off.
    2.Plug the device's USB cable into your computer only.
    3.Hold down the device's Home button as you connect the USB cable to it.
    4.When you see the Connect to iTunes screen, release the Home button. If you don't see this screen, try steps 1 through 3 one more time.
    5.Use iTunes to restore your device.

    Additional Information:
    If you started your device in recovery mode by mistake, restart it to exit recovery mode. Or you can just wait—after 15 minutes the device will exit recovery mode by itself.
