Hey, I have bought my playbook just recently. I'm quite impressed with the product except that my windows-xp isn't able to establish a connection with the device.
I've the drivers and blackberry desktop software installed .. it would recognize the playbook but couldn't establish the connection. I've updated my tablet's OS but still doesn't work.
I'll appreciate if you can help me here a bit
If its XP home you will have to add full networking and all the netbios stuff in the add windoze features dialog. XP Pro should be OK if it's all turned on. XP was never intended for full networking, we are talking 10 years ago when we all had usb modems and a candle by the bed.

I just run in the same situation about two weeks ago - and "that" - after successfully using for a year the "Desktop Manager" (for two tablets and two phones). I’m running “XP Pro” at home…
To make the story short, the culprit was the "updated" version of my “Antivirus” preventing the BB to interact with computer; moreover, I had to remove the antivirus from the “Firewalled wireless adapter” to make it work…
Try disconnecting your “Internet” connection (as a precaution, I’ll always do that!) and after doing that “Disable” your “Antivirus” program... See if you have a "Firewalled filter" protected by your Antivirus.
I hope will work… And don't forget to re-set your Antivirus protection - it's the price we all have to pay to avoid "headaches"!
Cheers and Good luck!

Hi, I wonder if my WiFi-Playbook has OTG-ability? If so, could I use a special OTG-cable (microUSB-USB) to switch an internet-stick on? If OTG is not possible, do you think it might be managed by a software-update of OS 2.01.... (maybe OS10?)?

You can connect using a bluetooth enabled fone. Just add your playbook to the fone bluetooth devices and tether. It's fast and simple. It works.
