I am trying to download the new OS 5.0.1 on my desktop via iTunes but I keep getting this error. It downloads for about a minute or two and then this error pops up:

"there was a problem downloading the software for the iPhone the network connection was reset"

How can I fix this?

Oh shoot, I didn't look that far down. Guess they didn't update that thread yet. Let me see what I can find.
It's not a link in this forum, but another reputable one.

Should be at the very bottom. Just make sure you get the correct one for your phone version.

Also, when I try to download via Chrome or Firefox it says "interuppted" or "failed" after downloading about 50MB or so....
