Re: Not able to connect to wifi?

The only thing I can suggest is that you log on to your wireless router/AP and see if there are any clues in its event log.

Re: Extremely Slow Boot-up

Well I can't remember whether or not it was faster a year ago but the only services that appear to load on startup are:

Online Firmware Update
Maps
Google Play Store
Google Services
Email

So I wouldn't be surprised if the newer versions of the Google [email protected] is slower than the old.

Re: Extremely Slow Boot-up

I've just timed mine.

From a completely powered off state: Press power button once and wait for lock screen to appear = 1m 40s

It's always taken that long.

Re: Archos 70b in home network

What operating system are you running on your PC?

You need to enable Windows (SMB) sharing on your home directory so that the Archos can see it.

On the Archos go to :
Apps -> Files -> Network -> Shared folders (SMB) -> {workgroup-name } -> {PC-name} -> {share-name}

Re: Got a 70b for Xmas and can't seem to get it working

Then it must be a hardware fault (quite common with Archos as they're built down to a price). Can you get a replacement/refund?

Re: Got a 70b for Xmas and can't seem to get it working

Here's a picture: http://i.imgur.com/FSC1H.jpg. It just shows the time, internet connectivity, battery life, and a symbol of a lock and that's it. I can't do anything with it. That is the default "lock screen". To unlock the tablet: touch the lock symbol and a bigger outer circle will appear, drag ...

Re: Got a 70b for Xmas and can't seem to get it working

Hmm, sounds like a sensitivity problem with the screen. It could be a hardware fault but then again it appears to work during the initial setup. Read this thread here (http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?f=85&t=65073) particularly the second post: You need to reboot into recovery (restart and ...

Well, at the risk of stating the obvious... Have you tried, 1) Checking the USB cable is properly pugged in/tried another USB cable. 2) Followed the instructions here: http://www.archos.com/manuals/A70b_it_EN.html#zzee_link_75_1312982515 Here's a video showing the process.
