PlayBook won't connect to saved wifi network.

[ Edited ]

I've had my PlayBook for a few days and everything has been perfect. Then, last night when I was downloading apps, I downloaded some game/app called Scheme. 

When I went to launch it, I noticed there was no icon for the app, but it still said the title. I clicked it anyways, then it froze my PlayBook. I reset it by holding the volume and power keys, then when it powered back up, it wouldn't connect to the wifi connection I'd been using the whole time.

It still works on another saved wifi network I've used, but won't connect to this one for some reason. It tries to connect, and then says attempt failed/timed out. 

I've now done a wipe on it to see if that fixes it, but now upon setup, I STILL can't connect to the network. I can't get past the first screen.

Any ideas?



Nevermind, I'm an **bleep**. I just had to restart the router.
