Can anyone tell me how I can get the Wi-fi connection on my Archos home tablet? I have done everything I was told in the manual, to set it up, but when I try to connect the Archos tablet to my broadband at home, it tells me that the password is incorrect, so which password are they referring to? Is it the one which I use to get into Virgin Media, as this is the one which doesn't work?
I had a look earlier, but there is no sticker on the router and I have no idea what the password can be, since when I use my password to open my computer, the broadband internet connection is already there, to access. This technology is sooooo confusing!
Oops, I did what you suggested, but the system threw me out, saying I was unauthorised. But,... since starting this conversation, I did find my Virgin Media password and it allows me to use the wi-fi for my laptop at home and to get into my account in Virgin Media, so it has to be the correct one. So I tried this in the Archos, but no, it's having none of it. So I guess I'll have to ask the people at Archos themselves, what might be wrong with this device, but thanks for your help anyway. Cheers.
Hi again, Whiz Kid! I've since gone up to Currys for something and whilst I was there, I spoke to someone who let me connect to their in-store wi-fi just to test the Archos 7 tablet out and hey presto, it worked just fine, so the problem lies with the Virgin Media broadband connection I have at home. It might be that it is restricting me to just connecting one device, i.e. my laptop, but I should be getting someone to come fix our cable box shortly, so I can ask about that problem then.
The main thing is that the Archos 7 tablet is working as it should and the guys at Currys were really impressed with it. But I just wanted to thank you guys for trying to help me solve this latest problem. Cheers to you all, byeeee.
