If you are having the same problems as me, on update, I had no wifi connections at all - didn't find a single one, despite the area being overrun with wifi networks.
Connect your paperweight, I mean, Playbook, to the Desktop Software, take a backup, then do a security swipe and reset the whole thing.
With mine, as soon as it came back on after the swipe the wifi was working correctly.
I re-connected it to the Desktop Software, accepted any updates it was offering, then restored my backup from this morning.
Hey presto! A fully functioning Playbook!

Restore PB to factory default: This was suggested as a solution to another message tread heading "Playbook OS2 and Encrypted Wifi Issues." Although it didn't sound entirely the same as the problem stated here (same as mine), I tried it and it worked.
Just make sure you save all the media file by connecting your PB to your PC via USB cable as another drive. Follow the instructions carefully.
I like this OS much better after all.
