I've been trying to upgrade for three days. No matter what time day or night I keep getting the "can't reach iPad update" server message. Anyone else having trouble. I am running the latest version of iTunes and have no firewall.

Apple servers are probably down due to the high demand for the new ios.

Actually I change my DNA server setting and it went right thru. Strange.

I seem to have a similar problem here in South America. I cant seem to connect to Safari, Itunes and the Apps store.
I changed my DNS as my service provider suggested.
I've checked my router and laptop and everything is in perfect working condition.
However whem i'm at the office everything is working perfectly.
It's just very frustrating.

DNS is domain name system, it's how computers link to each other, each web address has an ip address linked to it and this is the DNS.......I think!

Yep. Mistyped. I meant DNS server. I changed it to 8.8.8.8 and that solved the problem immediately. If you're running a Mac just go to settings>network>advanced, look for the DNS tab
