Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

2 Answers

I can't get the Archos 605 to connect to the internet

I've put the WPA key in as instructed but the message I'm getting back is "connection failed". My broadband provider is Orange and I'm using the "Livebox". Maybe Archos and the Livebox are not compatible?? I've followed the other procedure suggested entering in server/gateway etc details but still the same.

    Hi, I have an archos 605 wifi 80GB, and It detects wifi signals fine, but when I try to open to an open connection at home, it keeps on saying connection failed! What can I do? There is no password for the connection, and its an opened connection.

I think you have to press the PAIRING button on the back of the Livebox for it to connect !

My archos 605 gen 5 cannot connect to internect


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

My Archos 605 80gb cannot find my netgear wireless thingy!!!!


I had the same prob with a LinkSys. Puzzling for sure. Finally, I went to a Crystal restaurant (hot spot) and it connected. So, I knew it wuz my router. Finally stumbled on to the prob. I had to key in the 605 MAC address in the router table. Now, it works beautifully. You can find your MAC address under "Settings." Hope this helps!

Connection problem.


Don't know if this will work with this router, but witth my Orange router, I had exactly the same. I had to press a "pairing" button on the router when it was trying to connect to my Archos, and then it connected almost straight away. Otherwise, I could not connect.

Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player Problem: Archos 605 Recovery code 108


This is generally due to failed firmware updates, etc....here is something to try that has worked for some others:
1. connect the archos to the PC
2. click on repair
3. click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in your windows (be patiant it takes some time)
4. once you see the drive, open it and make sure the System folder is empty, if not delete the file that exists there.
5. download firmware from archos website and put the firmware update file directly on the root of the archos drive
6. click repair again on the archos and done.
I've been told this does not always work on the first attempt, so give it a couple of tries if the first attempt fails.

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.
