Result:the ipad software update server could not be contacted

Hi,I tried to update my ipad to iOS 4.2.1, but after I downloaded the update, it said it was verifying the update with Apple, and continued to do this for several minutes, then it said Apples servers could not be reached. It then put my ipad into recovery mode, and told me I had to restore it, which Ive tried to do multiple times, but all with the same result. Is there anything I can do? ipad iOS 4...|ipad-software-update-server-contacted-unavailable

Each time I connect the ipad to my MacBook Pro, I receive a message informing me that there is an update available to the ipad software. This has happened since the day I bought the ipad. However, after the software has downloaded, an error message appears and the installation is not executed. I have tried the options of download and install and download only but the result is the same. Does anyone know what the problem might be and how to overcome it?

Im trying to download the software update for the ipad. After a long time of downloading it shifts to file processing. After a couple minutes there, it stops the process because of no activity on the network. I think the error is 3239. The same thing happens when weve tried to update our ipod touches. Are there settings that need to be changed?Thanks! macbookpro Mac OS X (10.6.6)...|downloading-software-update-ipad

I know this is te wifi forum but there is no but there is no Bluetooth forum. I have lost range on Bluetooth speakers after the wifi update. This is an original ipad from day one. Speakers are soundmatters foxl. As soon as the update was done the range dropped to about 1-2 feet. They just cut in and out. Placing tme right next to the ipad causes this to stop.

I have a large pdf file (biology textbook) that I would read on my ipad. It worked flawlessly until the latest software update (4.3.1). Now I can only see the first page and it only shows page 1 of 1, even though it is taking up all 450MB of space. I cant see any other pages and they arent even shown at the bottom of the screen in iBooks. I tried deleting the file from iTunes and resyncing it. I also tried a full restore of my entire ipad and that didnt work. It was working fine before the software update so I dont know what to do.
