Archos 605 wifi

I have got a new archos 605 wifi, and have installed web browser plug-in. i've got a network @ home which it detects and refuses to connect to. i have tried entering the password, and even to connect manually (entering the IP address, netmask, gateway and DNS server). after a manual log in, it was connected briefly, but refused to display any web-pages (content portal is a no go as well). any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the Archos 605Wifi, everything except the wifi portion works fine - when in a wifi hotspot, it detects the connection and seems to connect, but then when i try to use the internet or the content portal the screen goes fuzzy for a minute and the player restarts.

    Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605


    There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)

    Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!

    First off, I would recommend at least to get you going, that you NOT use the Archos to buy your plug-ins. Instead go to a desktop or laptop computer and buy your plug-ins using it. You will get the files you need by email. Once you copy them to the root of your Archos, the upgrade is painless. You likely will need the latest firmware before you upgrade so make sure you get that first.

    I bought 4 Plug-ins for my Archos 605 WiFi TV+(Cinema+Podcast+Web)plugins for about $38.00 US on eBay. The deal was quick and cost much less than I would have paid to buy them directly from Archos. The seller I bought from claims to be an authorized reseller. I believe this is true because when I went to Archos, I found my player already registered. You may also find that you can get a similar bulk price for plug-ins for at the Archos Forum.

    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!
