Archos 5 - Wifi keeps failing

Bought new Archos 5 (250GB one). Can't seem to get it to connect to Wifi (keep getting "connection failed" when I click on network even though it can see it OK - even though I've typed in the correct WEP key. Online manual mentions MAC address filtering but no idea what this is about or how to do this (it's a Netgear router).

Help please before I lauch the damn thing out the window!!

SOURCE: Cannot connect to network with WEP key encryption

It will not connect to a wireless network with WEP. it supports only the latest encryption. Try changing the encreption on your router to WPA or WPA2

SOURCE: Archos 605 wifi, simple can't

Check you router configuration

do you have mac filters enabled.
Check the signal
The device only supports wireless g (check your network is enabled for wireless g) Device is not backwards compatible and does not support anything other than band G
Change the wireless channel- sometimes there maybe a lot network traffic. Remember because its wireless your traffic could be conflicting with other wireless traffic.
Try pinging router and reseting

SOURCE: Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605

There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)

Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!

SOURCE: Archos 704 WPA/WEP

The WEP or WPA is the password to get onto the network. Think of the router as the doorman. The printer needs to get into the club so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access.

The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with your router to see how to access this information. Some routers provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key if this is the case.

Connection problem.


Don't know if this will work with this router, but witth my Orange router, I had exactly the same. I had to press a "pairing" button on the router when it was trying to connect to my Archos, and then it connected almost straight away. Otherwise, I could not connect.

Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player Problem: Archos 605 Recovery code 108


This is generally due to failed firmware updates, etc....here is something to try that has worked for some others:
1. connect the archos to the PC
2. click on repair
3. click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in your windows (be patiant it takes some time)
4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there.
5. download firmware from archos website and put the firmware update file directly on the root of the archos drive
6. click repair again on the archos and done.
I've been told this does not always work on the first attempt, so give it a couple of tries if the first attempt fails.

Hdd recovery 2 problem


I have the same problem with my Archos 605 Wifi.

I found out that my harddrive was broken. so i replaced it with a new one.

Formatted it, system installed the OS and Media Files.

I downloaded the firmware from the Archos website itself!.

Also this went well. Than i had to confirm with ''done''.

But still i keep cycling through a circle of ''rebooting'' and receiving the ''HDD_Recovery_2'' screen. With the only selectable options:
''USB'' and ''Format''

Please does anyone know the solutions???
