1. Is that the right IP?
2. Are you supposed to use Port 8080?
Yeah thats what it tells you to use in the instructions.. and every search Ive done online specifies you include this part.
Can ya post a link to the instructions, please?
Have you tried https? I'm asking, cause you're using port 8080...
If you have Itunes trying clicking on this link or pasting it to see the instructions from the ITunes App store.

This is a list of very basic but common problems. Please make sure that the problem you are having is not one of the following before moving on:
Enable Wi-Fi on your iPhone/iPod, and connect it to the same network that your computer is connected to. It's okay if your computer is connected to the network via ethernet.
Air Sharing must be running when you attempt to connect to your iPod/iPhone.
If you are using Windows XP, install the Microsoft software update for web folders.
Make sure the IP address you use to connect is exactly the same as the one in the connection help screen in Air Sharing (tap the little Wi-Fi symbol in the lower left hand corner of the screen). Also, make sure when you type in the IP address to connect that it includes http:// at the beginning (not afp://), and :8080 at the end. Some users have reported that they need a slash ( / ) at the end of the IP address to connect.
If you have Require Password enabled, Windows Vista may ask for your username and password multiple times when you first connect. Vista may attempt to add garbage to your username. Delete this garbage, and make sure that every time you enter your username and password, you are entering exactly what you have set up under Air Sharing settings.
You cannot transfer files to Air Sharing in a web browser. To transfer files to Air Sharing, you will need to connect to your iPhone/iPod as outlined in the Connecting section of Air Sharing help (open Air Sharing, then tap the question mark icon in the lower left hand corner).
i used afp:// and then put my IP address. well thats wat i did when i wanted to connect my mac to my pc. idk if its the same thing for airshare
i guess you are in a company or university network environment. in that case, the access point is set to "isolated", and it means that the clients are not allowed to communicate with each other.
Separate names with a comma.
