    Hi, iPhone 3g jailbreaked, last version.
    I've never had a problem in connecting through wifi on my network (mac os) with air sharing.
    Now i cannot connect at
    Server not avaible in the network is the error message that i receive.
    It's really odd.
    Any help ?
    I've tried also on a different network, on windows system, with the same problem.

    i had this problem on my mac and it turned out to be allow only essential services was selected on the mac firewall. it wont let the connection through. so you have to change the option.

    i dont know if thats your problem but it was mine for awhile. Also if you go into the help section of the air sharing app it also shows what ip address you should be using.

    lastly make sure enable sharing is on in the air sharing app. sometimes i turn mine off to save battery so check that also.
