Archos 70b Erader can't connect to Wifi

Post by sahlmann »

Mi Archos 70b ereader doesn't connect to Wifi. Trying to activate it it on ly tells me "Unable to start WiFi". I already made an "RESET" but it didn't help. Before it worked properly.

Re: Archos 70b Erader can't connect to Wifi (MAC address)

Post by Jaapie1976 »

Hi all,

I recently purchased the 70b ereader.
And i also have the same problem. I have not been able to connect with wifi since i got the ereader.

Further inspection told me that the ereader doesnt seem to have a MAC Address available.
I check on two different locations Wifi-> menu->advanced and under about this device.

It literally says: Wi-fi MAC Adress
Unavailable.

Does anybody else have this problem or mayhaps a solution?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Regards

Hi all,

Can someone please help me. Its drivin me nuts. It really seems like the ereader does not have a MAC Adress.

I cannot set up the google account coz it doesnt connect online. And cannot add an app that i think might fix the problem.

It is brand new, i bought it abroad so i cant bring it back. I rooted it with froyo (as per instructions on the forum) I hoped that fixed the problem.
It didnt.

Please help me or at least let me know it cannot be fixed. That way i can give up and start saving for a tablet that wont have this problem.

A million thanks,

Tried that as well (had to download an app).

But still no luck. I ried Ifconfig in a terminal emulator. But it just doesnt budge.

Hope i dont need to bin this tablet.

Has somebody found a solution ? Battery Booster doesn't help for me.

Is there a file that I could edit where the mac address is kept ? or easier still, an app, that would allow me to change the mac address ? I have no access to appslib because no wifi.

I'm also having this problem. The wifi was working fine until I erased all data and reset the device. :doubt:

Update: I installed BQ Voltair and still have the issue. Mine is showing a MAC address.
