    I just got mine a week ago and am having the same problem. I was able to connect at an open wifi spot, but unable on my home network while my laptop has no problems. I enterd all the same information and triple-checked my password & the network shows up as excellent strength.

    Hi, I have the same problem also. I click 'enable wifi' or the web icon, sometimes (usually if the device has just been switched on) it comes up with 'wifi error' but mainly it scans and then comes up with 'no wifi networks found'. I know for certain that I have working wireless networks around me and have tested in several different areas to no avail.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? I'd rather not have to send it back to where I bought it as it was in Ireland and i'm in England!

The WIFI range is very short and walls can cut you off.
You need to be close and have a strong signal to pick up, I have used mine in a train station on BT Openzone and on my home network.

The small speaker is not that good but headphones work well.
You can buy the "Portable Speakers for Generation 4 portable video" but I don't know what they are like.

    I entered the Mac address of my 604 in the wireless recever so that it would be allowed and set regin to world.
    It can connect to any unprotected network but the network needs to be infrasturcture as Ad-Hoc is not supported.

    "is there any other option of charging the 604 wifi other than from connecting to pc?"

    Here is some that you can buy, some might need the DVR Travel Adapter to connect them.

Archos 604(Gen 4), Remote(Archos DVR Station Gen 5) Work or not?

If you mean will the Gen 5 DVR Station Remote work with a Gen 4 DVR Station, I believe it will for at least the basic player controls on your 604 (except for the alpha keyoard entry because the Gen 4 players did not have this feature enabled).

If you mean, will the Gen 5 DVR Station Remote control your Archos 604 directly (without a dvr dock), the answer is no, you must have a DVR Station for the remote to work on any Archos player.

Hope this helps.

It is just response slowly. After you get the Archos main screen, try to use your stylus to tap on the bottom right of the screen where is near to the 'Menu" area, you will see the pull out windows. Click on "Goto" option and then tap on either "search" or "Web page". It will come out the virtual keyboard and the URL windows. Jsut simply type the web address by using the virtual key and then hit the bending arrow at the far bottom right of the keyboard or click on "OK" key to open the new web page you want to look for. Hope this will help you.

Are you sure the battery is charged? If so, try detach and retach the battery. Also try to attach to your computer via the usb cable and the 604 should turn on by itself, if nothing happens you need to send back to Archos for repair.

The 604 WIFI keypad starts off in small letters but by taping the key above the alt key it changes to captials but you have to tap it for each captial letter you want as it reverts to small letters once you tap a letter.
