Re: wifi issues with

Hello jocyjoce,


Delete the current Wi-Fi connection and reboot your PlayBook:


From the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ home screen, select the Settings icon.

  1. Within the Settings menu, select Wi-Fi.
  2. Select Saved Networks from the Select a network drop down.
  3. Tap the Pencil icon.
  4. Tap the Trash Can icon and confirm the deletion of the saved network.

Once the network is deleted, reconnect to the Wi-Fi network and monitor the connection duration. 


Let me know how you make out.

Re: wifi issues with

I have been noticing some what similar issue.

After some time , even after restaring PB , the wifi conneciton does not go through. Fails at aquiring IP address stage.

The only way , I can get it to work is by rebooting hte router.


Also the Browser seem to be slow . Despite the claims that it is better thatn IPad. You tube as an app runs fine but simple browsing tkaes forever ....


Any hints will be appreciated.

I am using ATT wirelss Router with 6 GB bandwidth. I have no issues with Laptops or Desktop or even Logitec Revue. But PB connection really sucks ....
