I get this error alot! I've searched all kinds of forums and tried so many things that sometimes work (e.g., clear cache, restart). This is a common problem that renders the Playbook useless. It's so frustrating when you need to quickly jump online to check something and have to spend 20 minutes troubleshooting. What's the point?
According to my Wi-Fi tab, I'm connected and everyone else in the house is able to access the Internet without a problem (they have Apple products, I'm an die-hard but slightly embarrased RIM fan).
Does anyone know how to get around this error?

"Could not resolve host name" is a DNS problem. Could be your ISP, could be cache.
You could set a fixed IP address in the network saved connection, high up in the range of your router (e.g. 192.168.x.150) and then set DNS servers like Google 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 and see if that helps.

Last time I had this issue was at a hotel and kept tapping the link and it worked
At home I switched to opendns.org as my ISP DNS was overloaded
Look at my tips on wifi
