    I've used the iCloud. The cloud doesn't back up music, etc. that you may put on your phone, hence why we still want to use iTunes.

    Ooops, forgot to include the "other" OS!

     

    Do you guys even have access to icloud? Most of my Mac friends don't have such issus, then again, they all use the cloud service. Seeing as how happy Cuperetino was to turn over all that data to the government without a peep, very glad I don't use it.

    The iCloud is a wonderful idea but you got to pay the piper to backup all of your music including that which you did not purchase from Apple for $25 a year then if you to need more storage for your apps it is an additional

    10GB

    $20/year

    15GB total iCloud storage

    20GB

    $40/year

    25GB total iCloud storage

    50GB

    $100/year

    55GB total iCloud storage

    Unfortuantely buying a new Apple Lighting charge does not help the Wi-Fi Sync issue but, it does Sync so its worth getting a new charger.

    Check your Wi-Fi router’s setting to ensure that the IGMP protocol is enabled (on my router, Enable IGMP Snooping was disabled by default in the Wireless settings). It's used by the Bonjour service, which is what is also use for the Wi-Fi sync... Worked for me after that!

    May I ask how long it's been working since you made this change? And what type of router you're using?

  • Riverside_Guy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Now that is odd. While I obviously had some issues, they really were very few and far between... I only posted in here because it looked like the usual "reboot to fix it" had failed to work. So I read about IGMP, rush to my router's config and see "Disable IGMP Proxying" enabled by default. Not sure if the "proxying" has anything to do with it, but it does kinda seem to be the opposite of what you recommend. It was described by my router's help as allowing multicast streams from the net to get through to a PC on the local LAN.

    It's been working since I posted that comment (a few hours now) and my router is an Asus DSL-N55U.

  • ColoRed1876 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm no expert but I'll assume you're having the same problem, not being able to sync via wi-fi. So what happened with you? Were you able to sync via wi-fi after setting your IGMP Proxying to disabled (i.e. allowing it to run)?

  • Riverside_Guy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have had the sync issue, used the "pull and replug the hard wired ethernet cable to the router" to fix it. Have not has the issue since then. Yes, all during this time, that setting I mentioned has been set to disable IGMP proxying. Which means it had been set that way ("by default") when I DID have the issue.

    Well I am currently downloading iOS 7 on iPad and Iphone and upgraded iTunes to 11.1 guess we'll see i wifi sync works. Odd, the iPhone shoewd the iOs7 update but not when I was connected to iTunes lastest version..

  • garypaul Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So far wifi sync after the upgrades to iTunes and iPhone 5 it is working very well.

  • JanSKay Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I was going to wait awhile to do the update, but perhaps I shouldn't.

    I unplugged the iphone from the computer, then went into itunes wifi sync and it immediately started to sync.. not greyed out at all..yipppeeee!

  • Rob Mitchell1 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I just want to remind everyone, many many tweaks will "fix" the issue for a few days. So while I'm hopeful, I think it would be most helpful if you report back in a week.

     

    In general, I also think it's often safer to wait a bit before updating to a brand new version of iOS. Aside from issues sometimes associated with a new major release, I've seen older out-of-warrenty iPhones get bricked by an OS update (and Apple makes it very difficult to revert to an earlier iOS version once an iDevice has been updated).

     

    I may be a bit paranod, but I wanted to throw out some words of caution. While I love to be on the bleeding edge (I will order the 5S on Friday), I now wait a little bit before updating the OS, especially with out-of-warranty iDevices.

     

    As a side note, my syncs have been working pretty well lately, and I have no clue why...

  • garypaul Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Not Me Rob.. dam the torpedos full speed ahead!! I put the update on my iPad 3rd gen.. no problems.. I think we should at least upgrade to Itunes 11.1 and see if that helps but it seems to me that the upgrade to my iPhome5 did the trick.  I too will be getting the 5s this Friday can't wait..the 2 days later I will be bored again.. my fallen human nature... I just hope the iPhone 5s camera is better! Oddly enough I never really had a problem with wifi sync on the iPad just the iPhone 5 using iOS6.
