Apple’s Software Update faced networking error

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -



Psystar offers 13 non-Apple Software Updates. The first thing I tried to do after getting WiFi up and running was to run Apple's Software Update. An error message appeared despite connecting to the internet. Any help would be really appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

a networking error has occurred: timed out (-1001). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again. Software Update can’t check for updates because of a network problem.

Apple’s Software Update faced networking error


Hello Leona,

This is a common problem if there is no internet access with your PC.

Check if the connection is working perfectly. If not, fix it. Contact with your manufacture to get the perfect driver for your Wi-Fi connection.

Also check if your firewall is preventing the software from accessing internet. It is a common problem with Windows Firewall.

Go to Start menu >> Control Panel >> System and Security >> Windows Firewall >> Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall. There, allow your Apple Software Updater. In the case of other firewalls, check their user manual.
