HT4972 I keep getting an error when trying to update my ipad software to IOS5. The error is a Network timeout error when in fact my connection to the internet is stable and strong. Any suggestions?

I've tried to update my ipad softward to the new IOS 5 software but keep getting internet connection errors.
Initially, I thought it was related to my internet connection but I've tried with full connection and still getting the same error.
Any suggestions would be a great help.
PS - from South Africa

Thanks King_Penguin - I've disabled both my firewall and antivirus software to no avail.
Any other suggestions?
Using Windows Vista - not sure if that make any difference???

  • I keep getting "the network connection could not be established" error message when trying to update my iPads and iPhone to iOS 5.1

    I keep getting "the network connection could not be established" message when trying to update my iPad, iPad2 and iPhone4 devices using either my iMac or MacBook.  The Macs and iOS devices are apparently working correctly otherwise.  Problem started about a day ago when I connected one of the iPads to my iMac and iTunes notified my of an update for the device.  I tried and got the above message.  Tryied other iPad2 and iPhone4 and get the same message.  Also, get same message when trying to update using the MacBook. My system SW is 10.7.3 on the iMac and 10.6.8 on MacBook.  iTunes is version 10.6. Have gone thru the check list of things to check and have re-started. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

    Another user named Springbk posted a fix that worked for me as I was having the same problem today:
    I Changed my DNS settings to OpenDNS
    On a Mac go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES>NETWORK>ADVACED>DNS
    change DNS by adding ( + )
    208.67.222.222
    then
    208.67.220.220
    click okay/apply after. then try the update. after the update, just delete the two open DNS server numbers. should revert back to your old one.

  • When trying to update my iPad 2 to iOS 7 I keep getting the message that it has stopped because the file is full.  There is plenty of room on the iPad.  It also says to check the settings.  What do I do now?

    When trying to update my iPad on iTunes I keep getting a message that the download has stopped because the file is full.  There is plenty of space on the iPad.  Also, the message says to check the settings.  What am I supposed to check in the settings?  What do I do now?

    I have the same problem. It is only with tv shows and only with programs I have downloaded after the software update.
    Apple support sent me the above link too....but it doesn't solve the problem...my computer is authorized and the content is in my library and will play on my Mac air, but it will not sync the tv shows, it keeps saying my computer isn't authorized for it.
    No answers here, but you are definitely not alone with this issue.

    Boy sure what you are doing but the current iOS level is 7.1 not 7.0.4.
    You cannot update to 7.0.4.

  • HT201210 Error when trying to update my ipad

    I got an error when trying to update my ipad saying it could not be updated and gave an error 6.  Has anyone else had this happen and how did you rectify it?

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.

    If you are running iOS 4 or earlier you will have to update using iTunes on your computer.

  • An unknown error occurred (-1) when trying to update my iPad to iOS7.

    Last night I attempted to update my iPad 2 to iOS7. At some point during the process, the iPad locked up and I was presented with a screen instructing me to plug into iTunes for a system restore. I did so and after approximately 10 minutes, I received the following message, 'The iPad "iPad" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (-1)'. I have since re-tried about a dozen times to restore and keep ending with the same message. Is this just a case of the servers being overwhelmed? Should I try again in a few days when things calm down? Or has the update killed my iPad? Do I need to take it to the Apple store?
    Thanks Apple... Frustration level is off the chart.

    I am facing the same issue, have you had luck getting it solved?

  • I tried to update my ipad software whilst connected to my computer. There was an error and now my ipad is frozen with a black screen and a white apple. it will not even power up. Help

    I connected my ipad to my laptop in the hopes of dowloading some photos i needed. It invited me to back up my data and update to ios 7.0.6. After 2 hours to download the software it then tried to install it and encountered an error. The ipad is now frozen to a black screen and the apple symbol. i cannot even power it off. What on earth can I do?

    Try:                                               
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable       
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
