Problem with wifi hanging? Here's a workaround

Hi folks.


I've been having trouble getting wifi to behave when I come out of standby on my PlayBook. It stays connected but stops talking to my access point for some reason.


A simple workaround is to keep the PlayBook wireless connection active by enabling network sharing:


- Open settings

- Click on Storage & Sharing

- Turn on Wifi Sharing


Note that this will have an effect on your battery life as the wireless stays active during standby, but it saves having to turn the wifi on and off repeatedly during the day.


I'm sure this will be sorted soon enough Smiley Happy
