since I update my Playbook to OS 18.104.22.1688 I have problems with the WLAN. I can't connect to a FRITZBox with WPA2.
This work wonderful with the previous OS. Version
To get connect again I have to exclude 802.11N.
With 802.11b+g now it I am able to connect again.But this is not a permanent solution for me because I have an old PDA with 802.11N

I've also got Wlan problems since upgrade, keeps dropping out within 3ft of router! I've tried switching off wireless N on router (B & G only) but just as bad. It was working well before the upgrade. I can't see any other improvements with this latest upgrade so can we roll back - probably not! so will have to wait for a fix from RIM unless anyone knows any different?

Since posting my last message I decided to bite the bullet and do a complete re-install using the desktop software (there is previous thread with instructions ). It takes quite a time but it has worked wifi now back to normal. (also gives you a chance to decide whether to re-install those really useful apps??? You downloaded when you first got the playbook - mine is a lot lighter now lol)

a business traveller doesn't have access to the options of wlan networks he is using. Very urgent that RIM deliviers even a hotfix for this.
I'm a little bit disappointed. Until last year RIM was a reliably and stable technology vendor, but now we're seeing that the quality of firmware on all devices is getting worser and worser.

Sure, but a playbook must connect to an accesspoint using WPA + WPA2. And only a playbook is facing issues, other devices not.

And after some testing. Playbook causes wlan issues wit wlan-n and aes only, since last update. The mentioned kb article isn't facing this issue.
Again a broken firmware from RIM.
