you need wifi to setup, is there a local coffee shop, library around?

PLEASE don't use WEP, it is so easily hacked into and it is no longer supported in the standards particularly on wireless-n.
If you are changing the router settings use WPA-Personal/PSK or WPA2-Personal/PSK and with encryption type AES not TKIP and you should be safe secure and connectable. Delete the saved network on Playbook before trying to connect again.

7 makes it easier
go to control panel add remove programs
remove BlackBerry device Communication Components and reboot PC
connect playbook up to it and wait about 5 min to let it self install the newer software
