For you, here is the Archos101 User Guide. Now, about the wifi. Do this please.


  1. Open the Settings App
  2. Disable wifi
  3. Turn the Archos completely off
  4. Unplug your wireless router and wait 30 seconds
  5. Plug it back in, wait 2 minutes
  6. Turn the Archos back on
  7. Enable wifi


Are you able to see your wifi network in the list now?


Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I guess my archos is kapoot.


Expert:  Answers by Eric replied 5 years ago.


When you enable wifi on the Archos... does it show yo a list of any available wifi networks?



Expert:  Answers by Eric replied 5 years ago.


OK, then then its only one or two things. One, Its software related, and you can resolve it by doing a factory reset of the device. If that doesnt resolve it then the wifi radio in the device has become corrupt. The only option then would be to contact the seller and request a refund or exchange of the tablet due to hardware failure.


To reset the device:


  1. Open the Settings App
  2. Choose Privacy
  3. Choose factory data reset

Mr. Expert. WhenI open settings app there is no indication of "privacy"
Expert:  Answers by Eric replied 5 years ago.


In the Settings App, do you see an option called "Storage & SD card" or "Storage"?



Customer: replied 5 years ago.


There is a "reset media storage"(delete all your files..apps are not uninstalled).

also "mass storage file system format" (change the file system formatof the mass storage area).

I have selected:Windows/MacOS compatible.(FAT32)


I did not select :Large HD files support.(EXT3)


Not much help, am I?

Expert:  Answers by Eric replied 5 years ago.


Thats very strange as you are not seeing what should be there. I am going to do some research into your model and see what could be the issue, as there is no reason for this.



Customer: replied 5 years ago.
o.k. Eric. Appreciate it.thank you.

All I have found is that it should be exactly where I mentioned it, so I actually emailed one of yoru manufacturers reps, and am waiting to hear back from them.
