I just wiped my Playbook and installed the latest firmware. Yet I'm having issues with wifi dropping out in my apartment.
The Playbook does not notify me of the issue--I simply try to visit a site and wait for a while--and nothing comes up. Fixing it involves turning wireless off and then back on.
FYI my iPad and numerous other wireless devices give me no such issues.
Also, I noticed I'm not the only one with wireless woes: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-playbook-f
The purpose of this forum post was to grab RIM's attention and hopefully issue a software fix.
BTW, RIM, I'm a beta member...if you want to have me test a fix for you, let me know...

Looks like I'm continuing to run into this issue with wifi barely working at home. Playbook team, please look into this ASAP. Restarting the playbook is not something I enjoy doing and it's getting pretty frustrating. Otherwise I'm pretty happy about my Playbook.

I have no issue with my router and I'm literally a (small NYC apt) room away. As I mentioned earlier, there are NO issue with my wifi on any other electronic device I've got laying around, whether it be my mac laptops, pc laptop, ipad or phones.
