Default Connection failed caused by authentication error

Can anyone tell me their device management sever settings for the firmware over the air. That has received the new update to 2.3.4? I can tell you how to get to the settings to see what they are

I'm getting this error as well. I did the update to v21y a couple weeks ago with the LG tool. but my phone keeps prompting me with "You can check a new software". Way to go in english class. Tmobile tells me LG is pushing the update not them and gives me the LG support number.

I'm already on 21y and am being prompted to check for the update and then authentication error. Maybe this version of 21y is slightly different.

I am getting this error as well. I was running CM7.2 rc1 and decided to night to revert to stock to see if I could get the ota.

I used CWM to restore to stock 2.3.3 using the download from gunman's thread. Cleared dalvik, cache and did a factory restore. I noticed superuser was still on there so I flashed jboxers zip to unroot, then used nvflash to restore stock recovery. Cleared cache, dalvik and did another factory reset to be sure.

Checking for an update I don't get a message about whether my phone is up to date or not, I get a message saying it can't connect to the server due to an authentication error.

This happened to me last time there was an ota update. To go from Froyo to GB I had to use the LG tool because my phone wouldn't authenticate with tmo's servers.

It's not a second hand phone or anything. I bought it directly from a tmo store. Dunno why it won't ever authenticate for an ota update.

My g2x did that for the 2.3.3 update on the new one it downloads then had the authentication error. The offline fix for the update works great though
