Re: playbook wifi connection issues

LOL!! Can't blame you there.  If it works leave it alone.

Re: playbook wifi connection issues

Are the reception bars at about 50% or more?

 

Try deleting the WiFi link, and re-do it again to see if maybe there is something not right in how it establishes its link. I have a Playbook, and use it with a number of WiFi locations. So-far I have not had any issues with it.

Re: playbook wifi connection issues

 

Yeah I'm also facing this problem. My modem is Cisco Linksys WAG54G2, with WPA2-PSK security mode. The playbook DID connect to wifi when it started the 1st time, and showed no hope to connect again after upgrading OS.

Plus, I got the same problem with my Motorola Defy (exactly the same, 1st connect without any problem then oops...).

 

Just read the replies, so I suppose there could be something wrong with WPA2 mode, so i'm working on it now. But the question is, why are other devices working smoothly (iPhone, BB 9780, nokia,... and PC of cource) when these 2 (BB PlayBook & Motorola Defy) got stuck with the same wifi network? As far as I know, they use different OS (Android 2.1 & BlackBerry Tablet OS).

Re: playbook wifi connection issues

I sometimes found some devices don't always work as good as each other with specific WiFi protocols.

Try using WAP instead. I found greatest reliability with especially portable devices with WAP. With WAP if you want very strong security on top of the password set up the MAC filtering. You will need to enter in to the router's MAC address filter table the MAC address of every device to be allowed. Then activate the filter.

Just to get going first keep it simple. Try with the WAP protocol first.

Re: playbook wifi connection issues

Hi,

 

We are having a lot of problems to connect the PlayBook to our corporate Wifi.


I posted at this other thread:

 

http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-PlayBook/Corporate-WiFi-issues-PEAP-EAP-MS-CHAP-v2...

 

Can someone help us? We have no idea of where is the problem located.

 

We don't know if it is a bug but I think that we are tried all the possible configurations.


Thanks!

 

Regards.

Re: playbook wifi connection issues

This is a duplicate reply.  I've replied to the original thread at http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-PlayBook/Corporate-WiFi-issues-PEAP-EAP-MS-CHAP-v2...

 

If you are using PEAP with MS-CHAP, have you copied the security certificate for the WiFi to your PlayBook?
