Not able to connect access Internet on playbook

Hi all,

        I'm not able to connect to internet on my playbook. I'm connecting to wifi through a mac machine and it displays the wifi is "on" but throws an error "unable to resolve host name" when I tried to load any web page on the browser. Can anyone help me to figure out the issue?


Thanks In Advance,

Might be better to post this to the PB user's forum. This is an Adobe AIR forum.

Re: Not able to connect access Internet on playbook

As John said, this is a general question that you might want to ask here instead: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-PlayBook/bd-p/playbook

For what it's worth, your issue involves DNS... check into whether that is getting configured properly when your IP address is assigned by the DHCP server (assuming you're using that).
