    Still not able to link my iPhone 3G to Keynote - Have tried a plethora of 'solutions' posted both here and elsewhere. So fed-up I decided to use an alternative... Have to say Wooji Juice's Stage Hand / Stage Manager solution worked first time - no problems what so ever. True - it's more expensive - but at least it works.

    I had this problem when my MBP was connected to an ethernet network and I was trying to control Keynote over a private wireless network created on the MBP. It always worked fine when both the iPhone and the MBP were connected to the same wireless network.

    The solution which worked for me was to make sure that internet sharing was enabled on the MBP when it was already connected to a wired network.

    In other words: don't use the Create Network option in the Airport Menu, use Internet Sharing in the Sharing pane of System Preferences.

    May be worth checking: hope this helps.

    For me it works if do internet connection sharing from my MacBook and connect the iPhone to that wireless net. But that's a showstopper, as I need to be on the Internet via airport as well as using the Remote Keynote app on my iPhone ...
