No wifi available ... am I out of luck

 

Trying to setup a Blackberry Playbook and bridge to a 9800 .... unfortunately I am unable to reach wifi from my location.

 

Is there a workaround for the wifi setup ?

 

Thanks in Advance, Rob

Re: No wifi available ... am I out of luck

To complete the initial setup, you need wifi access to the internet. There's no way around this.

If you're just trying to get BlackBerry Bridge working, then you should be able to just download Bridge on your 9800 from AppWorld. On the PlayBook, go into options > BlackBerry Bridge and you should be able to setup a new connection there.
