    I have that same problem, its too short. when I chose other options, it says it's too long... You could chose between 64 or 128 bits in lenght, but mine was set in 64. Even when I'm in an area with unlocked networks, trying to get conneced is most of the time failure. I was sometimes connected to the internet, but I still don't have the browser.

My archos 605 gen 5 cannot connect to internect


Try:- Menu Settings Language and Region WiFi Region.....set to "EUROPE" Followed by: Menu WiFi Status WIFi ...important that pasword format corresponds to that of your WiFI system eg WEP or WPA. The type of format will dictate the length of code. Generally WPA can accept a longer code than WEP format although a short code can be used for either. If your Archos is set to WEP and your WiFi network set to WPA (or vice versa) the format conflict will not allow the correct password to recognised It should be possible to use the

My Archos 605 80gb cannot find my netgear wireless thingy!!!!


I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

Wireless connection


From the home screen, select the Wifi connection icon (middle icon on the right). It says 'scanning for networks'. It should then bring up any networks in range, including yours. Select yours and enter your WEP key or WPA key and click connect.
It should then connect.
Hope that helps.
