    Ok, things to try.

    Disable your firewall during the download. (don't forget to reenable it after). There are have been problems in the past with Apple downloads and firewalls.

    Same for anti-virus software. Be sure to run a scan when you are done, just in case.

    If your computer is set to go to sleep after a certain time, temporarily turn that off.

    When you get the option to upgrade from iTunes, choose the download only option. That way you don't have to leave your iPad connected while it does it's thing. The next time (after the download) that you connect the iPad you'll get the chance to upgrade. This also seems to have a lower failure rate than the download and update at the same time option. There is less to go wrong at any one time.

    It is also possible to download the update directly using a browser and do the update manually. You'll have to do a search for that. I can not remember the site or exact method off the top of my head. Or maybe someone who does know will wander along.

    I've had a 100% success rate since going to the download only method ( 4 updates) vs 100% failure (at least 6 attempts) trying to download and install together.
    I plug it in, it says an update is available,I check download only, go to bed, its ready the next morning to install . With trying to do both in 1 shot it would get about half an hour into the download then time out. I did the download only the first time from fatigue, after it timed out 3 times, and have stuck with it

    Glad it worked for you. iOS 5 is still scheduled for sometime this Fall. Towards the end is the safer bet.

    Having been through this sort of waiting game on several occasions, it's perhaps worth noting that "fall" lasts until December 21, 2011. This should be remembered when the first desperate complaints start showing up on September 21, 2011. :D

    Update download conntion problems

    I "kind of" have the same problem updating.

    First off I have tried to disconnect the firewall and antivirus software.

    Still no go.

    I have no problems downloading apps and apps updates. Can connect to iTunes without a problem. Just can't update iOS.

    Now, if I connect my iPad 2 to my laptop, I can get the updates. However, I don't want to sync my iPad with the laptop. The Internet connections with the laptop is wireless. PC is hardwired.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you running the most recent version of iTunes on the PC? That is all I can think of at the moment.

    I know some computers will shut off the network after a period of inactivity. Hit "download only" and move the mouse every couple of minutes especially if you have a screensaver or something.

    Yes, I am running the latest version of iTunes.

    Just don't know why I can do everything else in iTunes but I can't get updates.

    My problem is that I can't even start the update procedure. It says I'm not connected to the Internet, but I know that I am.

    I can do everything else in iTunes but get updates.

    I have to only download the software. If I hit download and install, it knocks my Internet out.

    Maybe I'm missing something.

    When I connect my iPad to my PC and it's through with the sync process, I Click on "Check for Updates".

    Then I get this message. 2011-08-11_123831.jpg

    I know that I'm connected as I can update my apps, download new apps, etc.

    Is the message "Check for updates" on your iPad or your computer?

    Try turning off your firewall and see if that works. Don't forget to turn it back on after.
