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!

Archos 605 wifi


Hi, Richard. Although the 605 is internet capable, you have to buy, download and install a browser plugin in order for it to actually connect. Have you done that yet? If not, here is the link:

If you HAVE taken care of that already, I apologize for intruding as I am of no further help to you!
