Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

Wifi and clock synchronization problem

I can't connect to my wireless router - this is a netgear 614 router, even with all the encryption and security disabled. I have successfully connected to a public network but when I do the automatic time synchronization fails and I cannot access the online content portal as a result.

Any ideas for fixing my problem appreciated.

You can try adding the mac address of your archos Menu/system/settings. onto the router. It may be a built in firewall preventing you from connecting. good luck

I am seeking the WAP code so I can can connect the unit via wifi to the internet


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

My son has been trying to log in on his ps3 with a headset but it says he needs a pass key?can you help plz.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passkey or Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the PS3, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

NOT CONNECTING TO INTERNET


I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

I cannot get internet connection, i am on wireless 1 and it is asking for a password also i don't know the ip address, subnet mask and the dns


Even if the modem/router you are trying to connect to allow 'dynamic IP' address resolution (eg. no need for coonecting device to know IP address, subnet, etc...), you will still need to know the specific 'password'/ 'Security Key'/Encryption Key for your specific modem/router Wifi coonection - I am assume that you also know the correct SSID (Broadcast system ID for Wifi) for this Wifi Connection.
Hope it clarifies a few requirements.

Yesterday I went to the library where they have wifi so I could download new apps to my itouch and it worked great then today Im connected to wifi and it wont let me connect to anything that is internet...


Try turning wi/fi off, power down, power back on, and then turn wi/fi back on.  Also, install the new software update for this thing (3.1.2) to address wi/fi issues.

I Cannot connect My Ipod Touch to my Tiscali Router


When you say password for your broadband PC Connection, do you mean WEP on the router?

If you have WEP enabled on your router, then this is the "password" that the iPod Touch is referring to when setting up the WiFi connection on the Touch.

If you are trying to use the password that you have on your PC, as in the Windows Login password, this is not going to work.

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 192.168.0.1 (or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.2) 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

Chris (ziraffa)

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! :)
