Re: 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.

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

Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch

You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey.  Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key)  Should work just fine if you follow the steps.

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! :)

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.
