Got the PB - Thanks RIM, but can't set it up :(

The setup process requires WiFi access, but there is no proviso for Web authentication during setup which means I cannot connect at work :smileysad:

 

Tried going through the desktop manager, but it tells me I can't connect the device because setup is not complete. Sigh.

 

I assume this functionality will work onc I get it all set up on an open network first.

You don't need an open network. I was able to set it up just fine on my home network, which has a WPA key, withouth problems.

"Web authentication"? Are you in a Corporate Network/Hotel?

I hate to be a kill joy but this thread is off topic for this forum...

As others have said, you don't need an open network, have fun with the PlayBook :smileyhappy:

Hey sberfield,

 

Are you able to connect through a home wifi network, do you receive any errors while trying to go through the setup?
