    I downloaded Kies Air and tried to connect to PC through wifi.
    When I put the address (shown on Kies Air when I start the app) into the browser's URL (on PC), it won't work...

    HELP!!!

    My laptop is HP ProBook 4501s.
    Windows 7.
    64bit

    Presumably your laptop is part of a network which is required for Air.

    At home this would be via a wired/wireless connection using a router that can hand out an IP address.

    If so then there should be no problem.

    I've used on many different networks home/work and various OS, XP, 7 and 32/64 bit.

    Hmm... ok...
    I've actually used Kies Air before, and it worked then.
    But it doesn't now...
    And I'm using wireless internet...

    OK thing to check:

    the IP shown on the screen is in the same range as your network

    make a note of the IP on the phone and on a PC/laptop on the same network, goto the command prompt and type ipconfig

    The first 2 octets should be enough to confirm the same network, so for instance if IP on phone started 192.168.x.x then the PC IP should start the same.

    If they are the same it should work.

    If possible try on another network

    Ensure any internet security package isn't preventing the access.

    I think I found the problem.
    Firstly, the IP address on the phone and laptop are the same. (at least the first 6 digits are).
    I tried Kies Air at uni, using uni laptop.
    It worked...
    Maybe I should try it again at uni with my laptop...
    This is very frustrating...
