Question about Archos 101 Internet Tablet 16GB 10.1" Android Tablet (1671641000) PC Notebook
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 It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security.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.
