Blackberry Playbook wont connect to wifi
Hi I have a blackberry playbook on O.S 2.01. When I updated to the latest os i could not connect to my wifi network. The problem was that it did not even recognize the wifi. My mac and ipod touch both work with this wifi and it is only the playbook that wont recognize it. I tried manually putting it in but it just said "connecting" for minutes until i cancelled it. Later I restarted it and that did nothing. Then I security wiped it and that also did nothing. I have also tried to debrick it or whatever, and now i am stuck on the connect to wifi initial setup screen and i cannot do anything on my playbook!! Please help me, It has been a problem for a long time now

I had a heck of a time trying to get my PlayBook to connect to my Wifi, and when it did, it kept dropping the signal. The PlayBook was the only device that had the problem.
My solution? Change the wifi type to G-Only and I never had a problem since. Apparently the PlayBook drivers have a problem with some N network types.
I'm using DD-WRT on a Netgear WNDR3700 router.Torch bridged with Playbook.

Then they sometimes set in various default settings that are more suitable for setting up a wifi router in summer camp grounds (with outdoor antenna and ranges of a few miles). Some of these settings don't particularly work well in normal residential home usage.

The PB has a one year warranty to the original purchaser. It also has 90 free Tech support. I do not know how Rim deals with "quasi-tech support v. warranty"
