Do you have Sync set up on either device? Before you can connect two computers together, you need to have created an account on one of them.

On one machine, click the Sync tab and choose "Create an account". Once you're done creating an account, you can choose "Connect" on the other machine. "Add a Device" will now be available on the first computer.
