Re: Wireless N issue on PlayBook

Set wifi security encryption on router to WPA2 type AES

Do not use TKIP or WEP as they are no longer licensed for Playbook on 802.11n

Re: Wireless N issue on PlayBook

@aandras - usually if you look up the router info, on one of the wifi connections pages, you will see which devices are connected in which mode. It will usually show you by either mac address or ip address so you may need to go back to the router home page to sort out which devices are which by name, mac addr and/or the ip they are connected with at the time.

Re: Wireless N issue on PlayBook

Had the same router,  every blackberry product including my BB torch had disconnect issues tried everything under the sun, eventually tried a different router brand and no more issues.

DIR 655 and BB don't work well together I tried until my ' fingers bled' no amount of tweaking fully fixes the issues.
