Galaxy S III (S3) using Kies to SYNC - Kies via Wi-Fi - Scan for Kies air server - No Devices
I have a Galaxy S III (S3) and trying to use the Kies to SYNC via WiFi feature.
Using the most up to date version of Kies for PC (126.96.36.19954_20).
I followed the instructions on the link in the Kies PC app “Wi-Fi Connection Setup Guide” and when I perform the “SCAN” feature on the Galaxy SIII Kies air application > the app keeps reporting “Scan for Kies air server > No Devices”.
I went as far as to completely turn off Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials (my Anti-Virus), and re-attempt with no better success.
However, when I use the “START” feature of the Kies air application, I have no problems connecting via my browser to “http : //192.168.x.x:8080” to access the Kies air web page.
I can also easily access the Samsung Galaxy S III via Wi-Fi for device / folder browsing.
The goal here is having the ability to SYNC my PC and Galaxy device using Kies, as advertised / documented, instead of having to use the provided USB cable.
Thanks in advance for any input, help & feedback that the group can provide.
