    I have been trying for the last 5 days top upgrade to new software ios 4.2 in itunes (latest version) I keep getting the following message "There was a problem downloading the software for the ipad. The network connection timed out. Make sure your network connections are correct and your network connection is active, or try again later"

    I keep getting the same response, I even went into an Apple store and was told to try it at different times of the day and night, I have tried this still no joy, anyone have any ideas please?

    I had the same problem a week ago, and then finally it finished properly, and I am happily using 4.2.1
    Keep trying.

    Try download the required file from the apple website. Look for the iPad 4.2.1 ipws upgrade file. Attach iPad, launch iTunes, open the main iPad screen and click the Restore button while holding the option key on your keyboard. iTunes will ask you for the ipws file.
