    I have same problem.

    If I plug my iPad or iPhone into the computer, it lets me sync over wifi. If I have it stand-alone or plugged into power only, the sync over wifi is greyed out.

    After plugging in my Ipad, I checked the box under the summary tab that says "Sync this Ipad over WiFi. Home sharing also has to be on. I think it will work then. I do not believe there is a requirement to have iCloud enabled.

    It took me forever to figure this out earlier today. After too much searching on Apple's support website I finally found an Apple article that explains how to set this up. Here's what I remember the general sequence of steps being:

    Use the USB cable to attach your device to the computer. Open iTunes. Select your device in the left pane. On the summary tab select synch with Wi-Fi. Unplug the USB cable (do not eject the device in iTunes.). Turn on the device's Wi-Fi. It may take seconds or minutes for iTunes to find your device. When it is found you will be able to start a synch either in iTunes or on the device under Settings --> General --> iTunes Wi-fi sync.

    If my steps are not completely accurate try finding the steps on Apple's site.

    Mine says the same thing.....sync will resume when <computer name> is available. It is available and plugged in. The Sync Now button is greyed out.
    iCloud is working as is home networking. What's up?
