My new Gopro3 will not update

Wondering if anyone had this issue and has a solution.

My GoPro3 Silver will not update.
When I took it out of the package I tried the WiFi and connect it to my phone but it would not.
Then I saw a card in the box that said to update it first.
It wouldn't update on my windowsXP. The Java box never came up so the computer never saw the GoPro.
I then tried it on my Mac and it installed the update. But when I turned the camera back on the update process didn't complete and said Camera Update Failed and Wireless update failed.
Tried it agaib and still didn't work.
Connected it to the Mac again and could not get it to see the GoPro so I had to manually copy the update files to the SD card by using the serial number.
The same thing happened again, said camera and wireless update failed.

I tried about 10 times and nothing worked.
When I push the WiFi button nothing happens like when it did the first time and saw the wireless signal in the LCD display.

Does anyone have a solution ?
The camera works and takes photos and video, Just can't update or get the wireless working.
