Error: Couldn't Resolve Host Name

Hello,

 

I recently purchased a BlackBerry PlayBook. When attempting to connect to the internet the browser says: "Couldn't Resolve Host Name". 

 

Is there any setting I must change? I have spoken to both Best Buy (where I bought it) and my Wi-Fi provider- neither of which could help.

 

Please someone let me know what to do/change.

 

Thanks

Does this happen with any website? Or does this happen with any website?

This happens to me any time I try to access an https://       website.

Will the Blackberry PlayBook ever be able to access https websites?

OK, I'll try my bank site.

I was trying my company's web email client.

Try contacting your companies IT administrator to see if there are any restrictions of special ports that need to be used to access your company email. This could be a restriction on the server side that won't allow the PlayBook browser to connect.
