I had this problem. I set up the Archos (5) numerous times and all with the same result. I finally set up the archos as correct as I could. I then turned off the cable modem and the router. I left them for 10 minutes and turned on the cable modem then a couple of minutes after I turned on the router. I let it all settle down for 5 minutes and tried the archos again. Straight in no problem and it has been solid since.
If that doesn't help then sorry I cant help.

I had exactly the same problem and solved it myself yesterday after months of phoning/emailing Archos "customer support" - with my set up anyway it was my WEP password on my BT wireless router was wrong, I changed it on my pc to the one that was on the bottom of my hub, made sure that the exact same password was entered on my Archos and I could not believe my eyes when it worked. You need to make sure of course that all the other settings match too, IP address, Gateway and all that other stuff I dont really understand, (nor want to !) Good luck Ulstergirl

How conect to internet wireless ? whit a archos 5

you can connect it via wi-fi or via bluetooth..
if you have a router near you archos will get connected with that router through wi-fi and you'll be able to go online.
if you have a 3g and bluetooth enabled phone with you pair that phone with archos via bluetooth so that archos can use phone data plan for browsing the internet.

these are the two ways by which archos will get online

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!

Have you tried username 'admin' and password 'password'?
These are for the actual router.
If it's the wep/wpa wireless encryption password, then you need to go into the router's domain page, it'll be something like (or or or and enter admin and password, and then, usually under the Firewall menu, it'll say Reset Factory Settings. You can reset it and your wireless network should now be unsecured and you'll be able to connect to the internet wirelessly with any device.

Hope this helps

PS You can also go back into that page and set new passwords for encryption and also for passwording the actual router too.
Write them down this time! :)

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.
