    Hi all, I am new to this group. Last year I purchased my new iPad2 and have encountered problems trying to up date to version 5.1.
    I tried using iTunes on my PC 6 times and it timed out each time. I then downloaded it using my browser which worked ok.
    However I have had no success installing it, the error 3194 comes up every time. I have
    Downloaded new version of itune
    Remove all USBs
    Checked windows is up to date
    Turned off security system and firewall
    Restarted my PC
    What else is there for me to do before I take it to an Apple store?

    Hi leelai and thanks for your comments. My version of iTunes is 10.1.2. I even deleted my first copy of it in case it was corrupted, and replaced it with another

    You need to update your iTunes as that isn't the latest version. It is now 10.6, so do this and you should be on your way.

    Hi leelai, downloaded iTunes 10.6.0.40, did all the other things like firewall etc and it still failed to work. I didn't say that the software update file was iPad2,1-5.0.1-9A405-Restore.ipsw

    Can you tell me what version you are on now, look in Settings - General - About and look for Version. If I've got this right are you saying that the update you are doing is for 5.0.1?

    Updating now will take you to 5.1 and the jump to IOS 5 is a huge one and will take some time and depends on what you already have on your iPad. Make sure you do a backup first. Try switching to a different USB port, turn off virus protection and firewall for the duration. Are you on the same PC that you have used for your iPad?
    Here is a video mini tutorial for you that I found helpful
    Try again and see how you go.
