This has been happening for 2 years, and hasn't been a large hassle, so that's why I'm finally trying to figure it out. So, what happens is, I'll start updating an iOS device, and it will start off normally. Then once it reaches the end, it times out. Here is a picture of what it looks like: http://i52.tinypic.com/1tn75w.jpg
I called up Apple 2 weeks ago, and they said to wait for Lion to release, since it's most likely a software issue, and update it to fix it. Well, it didn't fix. So now I'm stuck with what I thought was a fantastic Apple computer into just a sub-par computer that can't even update an iPod or iPhone. Thoughts?

Editing your hosts file should fix it i had a similar problem
open the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X) and add the following entry to the bottom of the file.
Hope this helps.
