    Last night I went ahead and took the plunge ... Updated the Firmware on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB (2.1.3 - Android 2.2.1).

    My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.

    This morning I found out that I can't get online!

    None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).

    Bible.is no longer works.

    All three of my browsers no longer work.

    Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).

    Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.

    Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....

    If your wireless network is encrypted, have you tried resetting the WPA key?

    Just curious.

    Yes, I did reset the Pre-Shared Key, to 15 characters.

    I recently update the Firmware again to 2.1.04, and now the WiFi problems are even more serious! I've tried numerous router settings, but WiFi disconnects every few minutes. The only way to get connected again is to reboot the tablet.
