  8. It can happen that your computer is not found because some Wi-Fi routers may not support the automatic device detection that PhotoSync uses. If your Wi-Fi allows access between devices in the same Wi-Fi network you can connect to the target iOS device by entering the internet (IP) address of the device manually. PhotoSync remembers this input and will find your device automatically the next time your try as long as the device uses the same address.

    To manually enter the address of the target computer please tap on the "Add device manually (IP)" link at the bottom of the device search window.
