The AES aproval is useless if i cannot connect to a large amount of wlan networks, because i can not administrate the accesspoints Hopefully rim will provide a kind of hotfix, maybe diabling use of N-Standart in the first step and a more reliable fix later on.
A little bit Off Topic (please excuse):
But i'm really disappointed, because we see more an more issues with BB firmware (e.g. alsy on Bolds and Bluetooth). And more disappointed users are talking about the "bad batteries" in the devices. RIM has a lot of things to get rid of, and i thougt that the new Os will be a good step to the future. But now i'm wondering if the upcoming BB10 will really a good choice, because RIM is delivering more and buggy software, hardware and firmware in the last months than ever bevore.
Plz RIM, WAKE UP: and get back to the stability, we had in the past years. Start listening to your users!

Sorry, but that doesn't excuse the bugs in the playbook. Sure, it is a good way, to support only secure connections.
But the playbook is facing issues with the last update when connectin an AccessPoint with enabled WPA 2 (AES) only when Wlan-N is enabled. That's nothing about security. Thats just a bug.

My network was even working well until the last update. Before 126.96.36.1998 n-Standart was working well. Since 188.8.131.528 Wlan-N is broken under different cirumstandes.
Wasted enough time this today. Maybe RIM will hear useres reporting issues in the boards an maybe THEY! start looking what's wrong in the mentioned causes. Because it's up to RIM to fix this. Thanks for your replies, but it's not up to you to change this.

Again: it is not about security. It is a compatibilty issue, because even WEP / WPA an dTKIP disabled doesn't fix the issue. And all your stories about credit cards an hackers are not part of this

same problem here. 2 playbooks in our house and both cant stay connected sice the update.
have a d-link dir-825 xtreme N dual band gigabit router.
Playbooks worked flawlessly before .358 upgrade since then pure **bleep** for anything on the network.
They connect, start to load page, disconnect cant stay connected long enough to load a single video - i wiped my playbook and no change.
Ipad and 2 laptops work fine so its not my router
tried changing router settings to just wpa, just wpa2, tried both 2,4 and 5 band - no change.
on weekend when more time allows gonna try setting wireless open to see how the playbook behaves.

I have also VLAN problems. My connection works well in home, but I have problems in my company. In home, I have a WEP encryption and información my company is Open with cautive portal.
I have also some freeze problems, then I suppose is a bad update. I will update another time to fix my problems as Lost as sea recommend.
