First you need to find a unsecured hot spot like McDonalds. If it is not unsecured you can not get on to the internet. There is no addon's that you can get to help get online.There are a lot of places Malls, Starbucks but stay away from places that want a credit card LOL.

Using my phone as mobile hotspot how do i get my network ssid.


You can use your Android phone as a portable hotspot and get your iPad, iPod Touch, or any other wireless device online. This is a great save when there are no available wireless connections available.

1. Go to the Home screen.
2. Select the Menu key.
3. Select Settings.
4. Select Wireless & networks.
5. Select Tethering & portable hotspot.
6. Select Portable Wi-Fi hotspot checkbox.
7. Select Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings.
8. Select Configure Wi-Fi hotspot.
9. Input a Network SSID for your connection.

10. Select a security protocol. Options are Open andWPA2 PSK.

If you select WPA2 PSK, input a password for the connection and then select the Save button.


You will use the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot checkbox from above to enable and disable the connection. Once the connection is active, go to the device you wish to connect and configure its wireless connection to the Network SSID for you Android device and input the password (if you are using WPA2 PSK). You now have wireless access for your iPad, iPhone Touch, Zune HD, etc. anytime there is a cellular connection for your Android phone.

I cant get my internet hooked up on my dsi to i need to go near a router or what.


You need to have access to WiFi internet, so this would mean a router at home or a hotspot at a local business.

Hello i have a problem with Archos 5 Internet tablet... our isp give me a ip adress And Vpn connection & i can connect with laptop but in archos i connect to wireless access point but i can't...


Hi, Unfortunatly there is no solution with your current set up, you will need a medium grade router like a draytek 2820, that can establish the vpn from itself rather than from the computer, this way the vpn is established from the router, and when your archos connects to the router it will also have access to the vpn.

Can get my archos 5 to conect to my android phone


If you mean to connect your Archos to your Android device through Wi-Fi, than, yes, you can! But, only if your android device supports the tethering feature. For example if you have an Android 2.2 (Froyo) device than you go to Settings->>Wireless & networks->>Tethering & portable hotspot and tap "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot". From the Archos, go to the the Wi-Fi settings and connect to the network you've just created. If you do not have the tethering option available, you should find out if your carrier or device manufacturer has an update for the device. Hope it helps!

Please have patience with an elderly computer illiterate person. Am near a wifi tower and am interested in purchasing a eub362ext wireless usb adapter to get on line. My desk top has windows XP. Will this...


Hi spring chicken.
Two ways of going about this, cost about the same, £15 - £20. Your computer needs to talk to wireless tower, this is done by a plug in USB wireless dongle, (small stick, plugs in computer USB port) or by a wireless PCI card that fits inside your desktop in a PCI slot,(white slots on your motherboard,3or 4 of them side by side) Both ways are straight forward plug & play. You say you are near a wifi tower, this is fine as long as you are in what we call a wifi hotspot, where the owner of the tower allows unrestricted access to other users, Library's & the such allow this service. Your dongle or card will let you see if the networks are security encripted (WEP) or open unsecured. A secured network requires a network key to be used, (an 8 or 20 digit number set by the owner)
You can only get free network access in a hotspot.
Or ask the owner of a nearby network if they would be kind enough to allow to use their network, you will need a security code from them.
Hope this helps, do have a nice day.

Before i buy it i need to know if i need a broadband dongle to connect the archos 5g to the internet


The Archos 5g should have 3g access to get on the internet as long as you get the Archos through a service provider. Where are you located?

Archos.com information:
The ARCHOS 5g does even better. Not only do you have an uncompromised web experience, but you can have it all-day, everyday. Surfing the web is now completely seamless.
You can watch online video or download movies or music albums from the Media Club even when you’re in the train. With its high storage capacity, you surely can download a lot ! And since the 3.5G network provides the same navigation comfort as your home broadband connection, you will hardly notice any difference.
All of this without compromising the essential features of the ARCHOS Internet Media Tablet.
You can store and play all your digital library in high definition quality. And since it is an ARCHOS 5, you can connect it to a DVR Station, and record TV. Just like that.

Archos DVR Station & 605 wifi PMP


Not sure if this will help you or not, but I have a 404 and was having issues with the scheduler changing the channels for me also. Then I realized that it is a infrared transmitter - the same frequency as a remote I realized what I was doing wrong - Your archos station must be facing the cable box that it is turning on. I had my archos on top of the cable box and it was not working - but when I turned the cable box and the archos station to face each other - so the signal can transfer - it worked just fine. Hope that helps!
