Is anyone having problems with wi-fi Sync with iTunes?

For exemple, I've activated everything on my iTunes and iPad but, when I plug it in power core, I can't activate wi-fi sync because it says my (PC) iTunes is not ready.



iPad 2, iOS 5

    I'm having trouble wirelessly syncing my iPhone 3GS over wi-fi. It says an unknown error has occurred.Then it gives error number (0xE8000065) . What does it mean?

    Yes, my itunes is activated, my ipad also.


    Yes there is the same network and yes it's turned on.


    I can sync it wirelessly just if I plug it in USB, then take out.


    not by getting home and recharging in power core.


    my iTunes wont recognize my iPad unless i plug it in first.

    Here is how it work on both my iphone 4S and Ipad 2.

    OSX 10.7 updated, Ipad Update to ISO 5; Iphone 4S on IOS 5




    Itunes must be running.  Plug in Iphone or Ipad it works the same.


    1.  Under Devices slect iphone or ipad

    2.  Under Summary tab; options check on Sync with this Ipad; iphone over wifi.

    3. Click apply on the bottom right.

    4. Click Sync on the bottom right.


    now you are ready to sync wirelessly with out being connected to power. You do have to do

    it manually but the following works as long as the devices are on.  I have tested with them with

    what I call asleep.  It does work.


    If you are in Itunes on your computer you can select the device you wish to sync and then click on

    sync in the bottom right hand corner.  It will begin to syn and show it on either device.


    In my testing both devices and my Imac are on the same wireless network.



    Next; On your iphone or ipad got to settings



    Once you have synced you are now set to sync wirelessly.  I am not sure yet what gets synced.

    I am still testing that.


    On your device go to settings/general/Itunes Wi-Fi Sync, select Sync now.  In a second or two your device should show that it is syncing right next to the wifi signal indicator.



    I have doing it this way for two days.


    Let me know if I have missed a step or something.


    Hope this helps someone.

    I was having problems getting the iTunes Store  window to open (stalled halfway and never displayed) I was also having the same issue as these postings where my iPad did not appear in iTunes when set up for wi fi syncing,


    The solution for the iTunes Store that I found in the community postings also fixed the wi fi connection issue! Go to the Windows command prompt and enter "netsh winsock reset"  You then reboot and both iTunes issues mentioned above will be FIXED.

    I tried it, but with no success. I ran command prompt as admin, typed in the command, reboot my computer and my iPod touch 4 with iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5 won't sync wirelessly

    I just had the same problem.  2 of my phones were not showing up and 1 was. I restarted the machine and when I launched iTunes, they all popped up.
