There's a slight possibility the Internet is cutting out. Is your computer hooked up to wifi? And what version of iTunes are you running?

Try looking at this thread, find the appropriate firmware / IOS and download it on your computer. When you plug into iTunes, you should be able to do a shift & right click on the device to select the file you downloaded. Maybe this will work for ya.

This is why I usually find the newest version of iOS for my particular iPhone and download it first. Then I hold the SHIFT key when I click Updateand it allows me to navigate to wherever I chose to save that download and use it to update my iOS software.
