If you're trying to restore to 5.1.1 using a stock firmware, just click "restore" rather than shift+restore. If you still get error 3194 with that, make sure if you have edited host files or have used TU to set the host file back. In TU, go to Advanced options, then uncheck the box to point to Cydia on exit. If you did it manually, go back in manually and set it back to normal.
If you get error 1600, are you using a custom firmware? If so, you'll want to do the above as well as put the device in pwned dfu mode before attempting a shift+restore to custom fw.
Edit: Based on my response, it is assumed you're using a phone locked to AT&T and you are with the official carrier. If not, and you need to preserve the baseband, do not deter from using a custom firmware and do not use the "restore" option to stock firmware. Use the shift+restore to custom.
