Question about Archos 101 Tablet PC

2 Answers

I have the Archos 101 internet tablet but have been having trouble connecting to the wifi recently, I try to connect to a secure connection (I have the password and it is correct as I did connect a few days ago) but after trying to connect it just says disconnected. This is my first tablet and I am not all that familiar with wifi stuff so am not sure what to try. Please help

I had the same problem with my third Archos 101 (I've had two replacements to the first one I bought in June 2011). I just got the third one two days ago and it wouldn't connect to my WiFi like the previous two would. I had to add the 101's MAC address to my router's setup and now I'm connecting to the Internet. Alternatively, if your cell phone supports tethering (my HTC Tilt does) you can tether your 101 to access the Internet through your phone. Mine is working well that way....for now.

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!

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.

How to connect wifi network in archos 28 internet tablet


This is normal. To save energy, the ARCHOS always starts up with the WiFi set to off. You must manually use the Fn-F3 keys if you want to activate the WiFi connection.
I cannot connect to the Internet over WiFi, what's wrong? Make sure that your WiFi is activated. This can be turned on and off with the blue function key pressed down and then the F3 key. The blue WiFi indicator just below the touch-pad will light indicating that it has been turned on.
My WiFi router/modem is on and working, but it does not show up in the list of wireless networks. What's wrong? It could be that the WiFi modem/router is hiding its SSID. This is done for security purposes sometimes. You can either change this on the WiFi modem/router (see its instructions) so that it broadcasts its SSID (and then you'll see it in the list on your ARCHOS 10) or you can go into the advanced settings of the Wireless Network Connection screen to the Wireless Networks tab and 'add' a new connection. You will need to know the SSID name and its other connection parameters.

How to connect archos 70 to the internet


You can use either Wifi or cell phone "tethering", which means connecting to your cell phone via Bluetooth and using it for connection to the internet. Just go to the Settings / Network settings and choose either Wifi or tethering and wizard will guide you with setting it up.
