    Google suggests that the iPad is jail broken.... But I have no experience in that though, but this site might help

    same.

    WyTey. i did what you advice before and do it again after u suggest but........equal.

    here is my host file, does it correct?

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    ---------------------------
    i know i cant expect much from here but i really need help.

    Make a backup of the hosts file, and remove that line 74.208.105.171 and then try again

    According to google, that line is used to trick iTunes in thinking it is talking to the apple server when instead it is talking to the Cydia, which jail broken iPads etc talk to

    On my netbook pc, my hosts file only has 127.0.0.1 localhost

    But then again, I only use connect my iPad to my MacBook pro, but it looks like that line in your hosts file is what is causing the problem

    Try moving the ics and umbrella ones onto the desktop temporarily and try again with just the hosts one, not sure what the ics and umbrella ones are for

    If all else fails, only thing I can think of is try your local apple store, or use a different pc as it seems to be trying to connect to the Cydia store instead of the apple server on your pc

    as a last resort I could email you my hosts file to try, mine only has '127.0.0.1 localhost' which is standard and on all pcs

    Make sure only the 'hosts' file is in the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc folder and reboot the pc to make sure it is reading the new hosts file
