I would like to know if what is the Physical address in BlackBerry PlayBook for?
If you find it difficult to find, it is under WIFI, Diagnostic Information. Your help would be much appreciated.

If the PlayBook doesn't shows Physical Address, what does it implicate? Will the Physical Address show even if the device is not connected to the WIFI? thanks
It's not so much the physical address of the playbook, it's the address of the wireless card or chip. A pc will have one for each wifi and ethernet card.
If it shows up blank the implication is that the wireless chip is dead or open circuit.

So, it No Physical Address means that the wireless chip is dead or open circuit, does it means it can't connect to wifi anymore? Is there a fix for this issue?
If you are looking at Wifi? then Diagnostic Information, Device Information dropdown, and there is a blank physical address but the Device OS, the Device Pin annd the OS Version are showing, I can see no other explanation than a dead chip.
This chip is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late chip. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. It connects no more.
No fix unless you can get a repairer to fit another chip. Looks to me in the pics like it's soldered in but I may be wrong.
