I have a Archos 101 G9 for 2 years. All OK but recently my 3G stick is no longer working.
When i try to connect it to the network i get those answers :
item Autoselect : Can't make connection with this network.
item Search Network : Error when searching for network.
If i use the stick in a PC Portable it works perfect.
Please if someone nows a solution for this problem i beg them to send me
asap an answer please.

Sounds like the dreaded cheap connecting cable that's the issue here.

This is the cable that connects the usb port at the back internally to the motherboard/circuitry. Plenty of posts here talk about this. The in and out sliding movement of the usb port quickly causes cracks in the cable that cuts off one or more of the data wires and the end result is the port becomes unusable. There are replacement cables available from other equipment such as cd players etc but I dont have a good knowledge of this and it would involve opening the case and replacing this internal cable - not an easy task.

The other, more simple method would be to connect the 3g dongle via the mini usb port at the side with a USB OTG cable. Apparently this works for the 3G stick. Good luck and search here for more info on the weak/cracked usb port cable issue.
