    Feeling an ‘update victim’ too after buying an Archos 70/101 TABLET with PHONE Android OS?

    I have an Archos 80 G9 and loved it.  I write “loved” because I downloaded the ICS update and my wi-fi isn’t working.  It seems to work better for mobile programs than general web content, but it constantly disconnects and is very slow.  Prior to that it was perfect for my needs.  I really regret the update now.  Any tips on what I can do to remedy the situation or on any upcoming updates?  Thanks.
