I'm having trouble DLing the iOS 5.1 update. My computer (MacBook Pro) tells me a network connection can't be established when my network works just fine. I've also turned on the WiFi on my iPhone 4S. I still can't update.
FWIW, my computer won't allow me to update to iTunes 10.6 for some reason, either. I'm stumped, and when it comes to tech stuff, I'm pretty much useless.
Can anyone help? I'm guessing these things are all somehow related...

Change the DNS server to 22.214.171.124. That's what I had to do. I couldn't upgrade, I was jailbroken, kept getting that error message. After searching the Internet for hours and hours, I found that, tried it and t worked. The first time I got a timeout error, tried it again immediately and it worked.
Also try turning off your firewall, or temporarily disabling your antivirus if you have it. I heard those can interfere with it.

I changed the DNS on my Mac to 126.96.36.199. Wouldn't update the iPhone or iPad either via iTunes through the computer, or OTA. Changed the DNS on the iPad and was able to update OTA. (The irony is that I don't really care about updating the iPad, because it's going away on Friday when the new one arrives.)
Changed the DNS on the iPhone, no joy. I've tried at least five times, both OTA and connected to the computer. I spoke to Apple, and the CSR told me that I had to be patient. I have trouble believing that the servers are still getting slammed, but that's what I was told. So I guess I'm just giving up.
