WiFi on 16g Playbook Sorry RIM you have really let me down

I am so disappointed in RIM. Happily used by Blackberry Bold without any problems. 

Looked at an iPad and opted for the Playbook for its, size, intergration with Bold and general look and feel.


It turns out to be skin deep as it has an underlying problem that makes it useless. It wont log on to and stay logged on to the wifi, it just keeps dropping out and reconnecting. I have tried everything I can find no forums relating to the issue without success,. Decided that it must be the wifi router at fault so spent £75 on new BT router. Still not resolved the problem.


 don't seem to be alone with these problems as there are many reports of the problem. RIM don't seem to acknowledge it. I could stick it on eBay I suppose but it will just give someone else a headache.


Sorry RIM you have really let me down :-(
