    I came home yesterday and "Sync Now" was greyed out on both iPad and iPhone. No matter what I did I couldn't get them to show up in iTunes via wifi. As I thought about my configuration, I realized that I have my photos on an external HD. The HD is one of those that goes to sleep and there is sometimes a lag when it wakes up. I moved the pictures folder to the local machine and directed iTunes to this new location. This change seems to have resolved the wifi connection issue.
    Hoping this helps someone else.

    I haven't tried wifi sync yet.. Kinda scared it will try to sync the 80gb of music or something, but I'm definitely going to try it soon.

    I would love to know why "Sync with this iPhone over WiFi" is not checked by default in iTunes... that was the problem for me.

    Thanks to the guy who mentioned Open iTunes when [...].

    Cheers

    The wifi sync has been driving me crazy (and it is a relatively short drive)!! Every time I think I have a solution, I post it and then the next day it doesn't work! I finally narrowed it to my router. Initially, I was rebooting the Win7 machine, powering off the iDevices and rebooting the router to get a connection. I finally decided to focus on one thing and choose the router (WRT610N Linksys) and the majority of the times I rebooted it I had a wifi connection for the iPad and iPhone.
    Tonight I did a google search using: WRT610N ipad sync. Sure enough there is an old section in the blog about connectivity issues with Bonjour. It suggested to enable multicasting in the router firewall setting and that seems to be the ticket. Not sure if this works with any other brand but it might be worth a try.
    Here is the link WRT610N incompatible with Bonjour - Cisco Home Community
    I've closed and reopened iTunes a couple times and have had a wifi connection to both iDevices each time which was not the case prior to this. Hope it is the same in the morning and hope this helps someone else!!

    This exact thing happened to me. Did you ever get it to sync again over wifi? If so what did you do? I have been struggling with this for several weeks now. It worked great when it worked! Thanks for any pointers.

    Haven't tried (and won't either) on my windows machine, but wireless syncing 'just works' like a dream on my mac. It's second nature automatically.
    It just requires a fresh boot from the iPad when the 2 are bought together.

    Well, I've had problems and I'm restoring iPad again! Maybe router, maybe windows vista rubbish etc... It's brilliant when it works, rubbish when it doesn't. All I wanted was to add Xmas songs to my iPad. Is that so very hard for it to understand? It won't sync, full stop.

    It is really weird. Sometimes it works for a while, then it stops. Not sure what is happening.

    Mines been working fine since the initial 5.0 upgrade but since the 5.0.1 it appears to take much longer to sync. Already tried all the fixes ie router reset, iPad reset ect... Just turned it off and sync and back up the old fashion way. Problem solved!
