    My 250GB Archos 5 does not detect any wifi connections. I've tried installing the latest OS to no avail. It used to work just fine.

    My Archos can find plenty of wireless networks (my neighbours) but not my one, using a bebox router. Laptop, wii etc have no problem connecting to the bebox....

    Having the same problem here. Not one wifi network detected (my laptop and xbox detect at least 6 networks).
    Used to work just fine, all of a sudden just stopped working.

    Tried updating firmware but no deal.

Hello.is there some manual how to setup wifi options for the first time?thank you.kastan czech republic


Yes there is a manual. But you need to look up, "Setting up WiFi on Windows Mobile", not the device name, since the OS is what your actually setting up. These directions below should work though...

1) Go to Start (menu) | Settings | Connections (tab) | Connections (icon) | Advanced | Select Networks (box) | You should see a "My Work Network" tap under it, on Edit... (box) | Proxy Settings (tab) | and check the top box "This network connects to the Internet" only then tap | OK

2) Now make sure that both settings show "My Work Network" you may need to reset the first one, then tap | Ok | OK | X | and soft reset your device. Note that you must back out the way I have described or the settings may not stick!

3) Then click Start (menu) | Settings | Connections (tab) | Connections (icon) | Advanced | Network Card (box). Ok, here you can do one of two things, if you see your Network Name (also called SSID) here tap on it to edit it. If you do not see your name here tap on "Add New Settings..." to create it. Otherwise if it says Network Name and this is blank, enter the SSID or name of your network, this will be controlled by the Access Point if you are using one.

4) The Important thing for us is we want to set Connects to: to "Work". This way this network will allow us to both browse the Internet, and Sync to our PC.

5) If you've configured WEP, indicate this and enter you WEP key. The passphrase won't work so you will need to enter on of the three or four generated keys that the router created using your pass key.

That should be it.

Dell Axim X5 connecting to Belkin wireless router


What is the model of your wireless router? Does it support the B network your pda is?

also try installing ministumbler (wireless scanner program) to the pda

available on this webpage
http://www.stumbler.net/

scan around with the stumbler it should detect the network, if its set to the wrong band, G only for example it wont be detected set the router to mixed B / G mode.

Having finally connected my 605 wifi to my tv set up, I cannot for the life of me find how to register my dvr station, that apparantly I must do, so that I can access the tv stations/programmes. I have...


You need to get the Cinema plugin to play .vob, .mpg and .ps files, and the Video Podcast plugin to play mp4, .m4v or .mov files coded in H264



The DVR station is used to record TV shows. Just plug the DVR station to your TV or Cable box or DVD player (you can record DVDs also) and hit record. The Mini dock is used for chraging but you also can connect to your PC with it and playback video to a TV (additional cable needed).

If i buy a wireless card can i pick up the enternet hot spots on a NEC mobile pro790


No. You have to have a hotspot/WiFi Router running on your PC/Laptop. wireless card is to detect and connect to other WiFI routers.

click on "Disable Proxy" and hit OK



Also, make sure you set the browser Home address to a valid address (otherwise it would complain about a connection loss each time you open the browser)..

If that doesn't help you then your lost.

Wi-fi PDA connectivity problem


First, restart your pda by using your stylus and pressing the pin-hole sized button on the back of the PDA. There are sometimes a couple of different reasons why the pda wont recognize the network. Main Reason: Make sure you are at the home screen... Tap the wifi icon on the lower right corner of the pda. T hen make sure that the WLAN power is turned ON. Press the setting button. If you see your network in the list, tap on it. It should bring up a network configuration window. Make sure it says it connect to "The Internet". Then tap on the "Network Key" tab at the bottom of window. If you have no security settings on your belkin router, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is set to "Disabled". Then press "OK". That should Be it!!!! Let me know if this way doesnt work, or if something doesnt make sence!
