PLAYBOOK WI-FI CONNECTION

My Playbook will connect to Open networks but when I connect it to my home network it will only connect for a few seconds if at all and then shuts down the connection on the Playbook and all internet connections on my home computer.  I then have to disconnect my modem & router to get a internet connection on my home computer again.  My router is a D-Link WBR-1310.  I am pretty much inept an computer lingo so am desperate for help.

Re: PLAYBOOK WI-FI CONNECTION

Without getting too technical, you probably want to try experimenting with the security settings on your router. Try changing the encryption type and security type.

It might also be a good idea to try different wifi speeds - eg Wireless 'g' instead of Wireless 'n'.

Good luck

Thanks for all the input.  I went out and purchased a new router and all is well now.
