No. I’m looking for you to find and use the “add a new location” screen. Discussed in the Manual and in Help. See attached for my iPhone (I deleted the connection to my local network to show you how it looks before connection). But may be moot now as from above you have made the “connection” that previously you reported you did not have.
Re using a “house hold modem” for Wifi … modems do not do Wifi. And where you are in the world is probably irrelevant as (I’m guessing here) most ISP’s use the same basic technology of the Internet. The incoming box is a modem, router, and a WiFi broadcast device. Nomenclature is important to get an understanding. You seem to have both devices on the same WiFi network with local network IP addresses (probably issued by the DHCP server on your modem/router/Wifi box).
The second screen shot shows for the Bonjour local network connection the the six databases offered by the iMac’s instance of DEVONthink. I only sync WIP and the “Inbox” which is the Global inbox. While I have other databases, only these five databases are “open” on the desktop. The others are too big to usefully sync and I only put stuff that I’m working on on the mobile devices.
Important. To setup the sync on DEVONthink ToGO, the Mac’s instance of DEVONthink has to have open all the databases you wish to synch. Ensure “daily” is open when setting up the sync. If not “open” on the Mac, then DEVONthink ToGo will not see it.
On subsequent syncs, if on the Mac you have checked the “open databases automatically” in the Bonjour options, even if not open on the iMac, when the ipad syncs it will – wait for it – “automatically” open any databases which are closed but need to be open to sync!
