I recently updated my Playbook to 126.96.36.1998 and since that I started to have wifi connectivity issues with my home network. Never had any issue before.
Basically the Playbook disconnects itself after a while and there is no way to connect again. The only way is to reboot the router. It works fine for a while and than it disconnects again....I also tried to connect manually without success.
Any suggestion? I have like ten devices connected with no problems.... I use WPA2 encryption.

WOW....I FINALLY got my playbook connected after nearly 8 hours of nothing.
This is what I did, I don't know if it will work for you, but it is worth a shot!
Instead of connecting to wifi in the drop down menu from the top tool bar, I went to the 2nd page of my desktop and went to the "Set Up" App. I Selected WiFi and and logged into my home network from there! And it worked the 1st time!!! I have been working on my wifi all day - and nothing worked.
I am really not happy with my update....I wonder if I can go back...the last one was better!

Check out the thread I post in here with screenshots to see if it helps you. http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-
On 188.8.131.528 I had a LOT of problems with connections stopping suddently. I almost took the PlayBook back to the store actually but I hate to give up and lose.
So ya, by doing some sluething, I managed to solve it and hasn't affected my other networked devices too badly also. See if the settings I post help. They helped me.
