Question about PDAs

4 Answers

Having finally connected my 605 wifi to my tv set up, I cannot for the life of me find how to register my dvr station, that apparantly I must do, so that I can access the tv stations/programmes. I have tried on numerous occasions to obtain this information from the Archos 'technical support' mob but they do not appear to understand plain English and have been NO help whatsoever, which I find extremely frustrating. Also having purchased the web browser plug in I find I still cannot access the web, even though I have full broadband and wifi equipment in my office. All the networks that appear on the Archos are locked and apparantly I need WEP or WAP keys to get in, I dont know what these are (being a novice) but again Tech Supp could/would not help, WHY???? I have heard repeatedly what a fantastic piece of kit the Archos is, but after shelling out nearly £300 for this and that to make it work and to still be unable to use it after 3 months of trying is very frustrating to say the least. CAN ANYBODY suggest a simlpe solution to thse problems.

Hi,

So all you want is the WEP key or WAP.Then y don't you reset your router to the factory defaults and then configure and setup the net connection.
Well this is the only solution..

Goodluck,

You need to get the Cinema plugin to play .vob, .mpg and .ps files, and the Video Podcast plugin to play mp4, .m4v or .mov files coded in H264



The DVR station is used to record TV shows. Just plug the DVR station to your TV or Cable box or DVD player (you can record DVDs also) and hit record. The Mini dock is used for chraging but you also can connect to your PC with it and playback video to a TV (additional cable needed).

    If it is not working , usually you are not using correct cable connection or you need to setup (for example) your DVD input to the cable you are using for connection. For example, if you are using RCA cables, then you need to switch your DVD input to RCA, s-video etc.

    To acess a wifi network instead you need to be the owner of the network, if you do not have WEP key or passphrase, that means that the network is from some of your neighbours.
    Do you have your own broadband wireless router connected to Internet,? if not you are not supposed to have acess to any wireless, it does not come for free.
    If you have a working wireless router with Internet , then you need to find your key from router control panel, or to configure the router.
    Let us know if you need more help with this.

    If you have a wireless router (ones with aerial) and broadband, then you probably need to activate wireless on router.

I have accessed my cogeco emails on my Acer tablet but it is not showing any of my emails, also I cannot access the internet


Hi
If you can't get emails, and can't get onto the Internet,then you are not connected to a WiFi access point. To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
Some public WiFi access points are not encrypted, and you therefore do not need an encryption key, but these sites are insecure.
I you are trying to use a mobile broadband service you will need an appropriate SIM card in the Iconia and a contract, (monthly pat or pay-as-you-go) including a data allowance from your Service Provider.
You will also need a username and password to get onto your emails on the cogeco website, but presumably you already know these as you probably access your emails from a PC using these anyway.
Finally, if you go to this web page:
Drivers and Manuals
you can download manuals and drivers for a very wide range of Acer products.
There are various ways to select your model but I have found it easiest to use the selection options >Group >Series >Products.
This brings up a page with tabs part way down for
•Driver
•Documents
•BIOS
•Patch
•Application
•O.S.
Obviously documents is the one you want for a manual and by clicking on it you can download it to your computer in pdf format to read with Adobe Acrobat Reader and store for future reference.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

My iphone does not work on w.i.f.i. or 3g, my friend has a camera set up and can only view the pictures on my iphone when my router is switched on


You can manipulate iPhone's settings to refresh flaky network connections, or reinstate lost ones, while physically moving closer to a Wi-Fi base station when needed. You can also improve your Wi-Fi base station or wifi router performance to overcome typical Wi-Fi issues.

My WiFi keeps going off even when I turn it on


I assume that you mean the WiFi connection on your Kindle keeps going off and that you have checked that other devices connecting to the same WiFi router / access point are not experiencing the same problem, only the Kindle?

If it is only your Kindle having this problem, then it may be worth checking that you have the latest version of software on the Kindle which you can do by visiting the Kindle Support web link in this update - select your correct Kindle device then follow the steps to check that you have the most up to date software installed.
The Kindle Keyboard should update itself automatically but can also be done manually if necessary.

If that doesn't work, then you may need to Reset the Kindle by pressing the Power button for 20 seconds - this will do a re-boot of the Kindle OS which may cure the problem is it is caused by some temporary problem.

Have you checked what your battery status is when the WiFi goes off - this may happen when the battery levels get very low - the WiFi will add extra drain on the battery and cause the battery life to be reduced if left on full time.

How old is the Phone? Phone batteries usually only last a year. Go through the phone and make sure things like the gps wifi bluetooth are turned off. also a constant data connection for auto updates of facebook or email or weather will decrease battery life.

I have a Archos 605 wifi, and when trying to save a web page to favorites the Archos shuts down and then restarts.


That's a memory error, I can almost guarantee it's an application compatibility issue or corrupted profile settings.You can try reinstalling the browser application, backing up and restoring the system, or reinstalling the system entirely and copy back you contacts, documents, etc.

IPAQ Rx 3715 Internet settings~ conectivity problem


I have a few thoughts.

Occasionally, for no apparent reason, the ipaq will "forget" your password. Try re-entering it.

The other option is to try a program called Kasuei Hitchhiker. It is a more powerful and easier to understand interface than the normal ipaq one. you can download it here.

Hope it goes well! I'll try again if this does not work!
