Make sure that when you enter your password that you use capital letters when required. The password "happydogs" will not work if the password is "HappyDogs".

Some access points use what is known as MAC filtering. That means, the WiFi access point has a list of access numbers (every hardware device has a unique MAC number) which are the only ones allowed to access to the WiFi point. The person managing the WiFi modem/router should shut off this MAC filtering system to see if this solves the problem. It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security.

Try temporarily shutting off the encryption system of your WiFi router/modem to see if the problem has to do with the encryption system you are using. The preferred encryption system is the WPA2.

If your WiFi router is set to WEP encryption, you should change it to WPA. The WEP encryption is known to be a weak security standard. If you do not know how to change your WiFi router/modem to WPA, make sure that when you enter your WEP security code that it consists ONLY of the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. Be careful not to confuse the number 0 and the letter D. Your WEP security code will have either 10 or 26 characters, there is no other possibility. In the case that the WEP security code is a password or pass-phrase, you will need to convert the password/pass-phrase into its equivalent form of 0-9 and A-F (also known as Hexidecimal numbering). You can use the WEP password to Hexidecimal converter at http://www.powerdog.com/wepkey.cgi to convert the password/pass-phrase. Use this given string of characters as your password.

If the WPA encryption setup on your WiFi router is a pass-phrase type (ex: "All good dogs listen to their master", then it may be too long. Try setting your WiFi router/modem to a pass phrase with 12 or less letters, like "happydogtime"

If you are using an Apple airport express WiFi access point, try converting the security pass-phrase into its equivalent in 0 to 9, and A to F (Hexidecimal numbering) format using the tool at http://www.corecoding.com/utilities/wep2hex.php . Enter this hexidecimal equivalence into the ARCHOS when the pass-phrase is asked (ex: 63757274697342726f64657236373839)

If your WiFi access point requires a pass-phrase and it has WEP security,If the WiFi router/modem is set up at the workplace, it may be using the WPA-EAP security protocol. This specialized WPA protocol is not compatible with the ARCHOS.

Some WiFi modem/routers are known to have problems with their internal power management systems (certain models from Netgear and Linksys). Try disabling (probably in the advanced configuration settings) the power management WME/WMM setting.

Hi there. I noticed that sometimes Android devices seem to have trouble connecting to certain access points or.they seem to stop connecting alltoghether to certain routers. Sometimes this method can help: Select the network you are trying to connect to and select "forget this network". Reboot the tablet and try to reconnect again. Sometimes this doesn't work on the first try. If that doesn't work I have heard of other fixes but they require "rooting" the tablet which could be potentiall dangerous. Another thing you can try if that doesn't work is change the security to a different encryption type. Your password will either be WEP or WPA. Whatever it is try to change it to the other. I cannot give you detailed instructions on this because I don't know your router model or its current settings. Hopefully this helps and leave a comment if you have further questions. Good luck!

My Archos 101 tablet's full sized USB port doesn't acknowledge my stick drives. It did but now doesn't. I plugged a hub in and it lights up but the tablet still does not recognize the stick drive.


This seems to be a widespread problem with the Archos 101 tablet. There have been 2 firmware updates since the problem was first reported, and neither seems to have fixed the issue for anybody, which strongly suggests that it is a hardware issue, in which case you'll need to do an RMA. I recommend contacting the retailer you purchased through so you can get a replacement unit or a refund.

Archos 101 internet tablet cant get out of demo mode


Try this:
Power your Archos 101 off by holding the Power Button for 10 seconds (this fully shuts it down).
While holding the Volume + button power it back up (tap power button to start up, hold volume until the tablet enters recovery mode, you'll see a series of choices instead of the demo mode).
Choose the Format System option.
When this process is complete make sure not to select Demo Mode as Android boots and the Archos 101 gets up and running.

Archos support is correct, if it doesn't use a simple interface like a hard drive or mouse/keyboard, then it won't work on the Archos 101.
Manufacturers aren't releasing Android drivers yet for the most part, so I wouldn't expect an ethernet to USB cable to work any time soon, sorry!

Betty,
Archos has been saying Flash would be officially available for some time now, but it's still not out. There is a beta version that I'm using, works great for me:
First step to getting Flash working is to go to your settings menu, then Applications, then check the box to allow for Unknown Sources to be installed.
To get a Beta version of Flash working use this link (from your Archos tablet):
http://ge.tt/36fA44X
You should be prompted to install this APK file on your Archos 101 after it's downloaded, this will give you a decent version of Flash (it's taken from a Droid X which has similar hardware to the Archos 101).
The Version number of your Archos 101 firmware is different from the Android Operating System. Version 2.1.8 is the latest Archos firmware as of Feb 28, 2011, this is Android 2.2.1.
To force an update, you actually need to connect the Archos 101 to the internet, not to a PC. Once you're connected to a Wifi network and have access to the internet, go to your Settings, then scroll to the bottom to About Device. On this screen is a Firmware Update option, this will check for and download the latest. Once it's downloaded you'll be prompted to plug your tablet into the charger and restart it to apply the firmware.

How do I transfer my sermons from my laptop to my Archos 101?


2 ways:
1. Copy sermon files from laptop to USB drive, then mount USB drive to Archos, go to files, external drive, copy files to ARCHOS from USB drive.
2. Connect laptop to Archos with USB cable & copy or drag files from laptop to Archos

Note: You will then need a reader / Office Suite/ or other app to view the sermon files. I assume the files are .doc files. Excellent app for this is Docs to Go.
