Wifi issue and BlackBerry mess

My PlayBook drops the WiFi connection every now and then.  But my laptop running on same WiFi has no such problem.  After learning about similar experience of other users, I conclude that the BlackBerry engineers have simply goofed up.


 They haven't thought of all the scenarios.  Nor they have any concern for addressing the issues.  They have simply left the users to fend for themselves in this forum.


If BlackBerry expect users to be very computer saavy, they are on the wrong track of rejuvenating the company.


Apple succeeded because Apple made user friendly devices for use by dummies.  It is the dummies, not the computer geek users, who bring more money to the company,


I am not going to use any BlackBerry device (even if it is offered free).

Re: Wifi issue and BlackBerry mess

Your router settings need adjusting. Just because all other devices run on the current router settings, does not mean the PlayBook will. The PlayBook likes WPA AND WPA2 Personal. Along with AES and PSK. These setting will be more secure for all your devices.
