Problem downloading iTunes 10.5

Hi guys,

I've been trying to download iTunes 10.5 so I can get iOS 5 on my iPad, but I've been having a problem where it says:

"Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem"

then underneath that:

"Software Update canít connect to the update server. Make sure youíre connected to the Internet, and then try again."

I've run the network diagnosis and my internet connection is fine, it always has been, in fact I'm on the Mac that I'm having the problem with right now

On my 13 inch MacBook Pro (middle 2010 model) I've been successful downloading iTunes 10.5 and iOS 5 is running smoothly on my iPhone 4.

The mac I'm having trouble with is a 15 inch MacBook Pro (middle 2010 model), and it's pretty problem prone I must admit. I don't think this will make a difference but when I tried updating it to Mac OS X Lion (10.7) it worked for like a day and crashed completely, then I fixed it an downgraded it to Snow Leopard (10.6)

Thanks in advance
13" Macbook Pro, 2.4 GHz, 4GB Ram, 250 GB HD ; 16 GB Black iPhone 4, 16 GB Black iPad (1)
