Hello I have a new mac mini (about two weeks old), I hope I am posting in the right place. I haven't used a mac for nearly 10 years, pre OSX. I cannot download mac updates with a 3 3g dongle and huawei D100 router, this has been working fine with XP and Linux machines (as far as 3g goes) and am struggling to find info. I have a good signal, other internet stuff seems fine, as are other downloads, I have downloaded an i touch app and updates from i tunes store ok, I also tried downloading firefox, again no problems. If I use the "software update" option I get... "software update can't connect to the update server..." If I try to manually download, it chugs along then times out, I sometimes get a bit of the file. Have tried connecting to the d100 via ethernet, disabling airpot and disabling the router and mac firewall, no difference at all. I tried downloading to an XP laptop, but this also is painfully slow and times out eventually. Again the problem only seems to be with mac updates. I got the important updates on to the XP laptop from my local pub free wifi in the end, then installed to the mac thinking that perhaps one of the updates may resolve the problem, but no joy. This has been going on for nearly two weeks, so don't think it was just a busy day for the servers etc. If any one can help or point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated muchly.
