    Hi, i'm getting the same issue, downloaded it for the 3rd time, it completes the download and then gives that exact same error massage also says "there was a problem downloading the software for the iphone "....iphone" the network connection timed out. make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, or try again later" my network is fine! can anyone tell me what's going on, it did take me about 2 hrs to download the software but at the end this is the results i'm getting.

    I had exactly the same problem as this when trying to download the 3.1.3 update.

    I tried half a dozen time last night and againn this morning and kept getting the same error message (err=-3259).

    Finally I remembered that I have recently changed my PC's Interent Security Suite to ESET Smart Security 4, so all I did was to go into the settings of ESET and disable my Firewall.

    I then tried to download the update once again and Hey Presto! it worked with no problems.

    I just made sure that the only activity through my network was the update while the firewall was off.

    Thanks for your help.
    I solved by downloading the update from another PC.

    I am having the same problem. I have disabled my firewall and antivirus (AVG Free) but I am still unable to download the update. It gets about 1/4 of the way done and stops, giving me the 3259 error.
