Password for wi-fi sharing not being accepted
So, after numerous attempts guessing my password for wi-fi sharing of files, I gave up and did a security wipe to start all over again (i'm pretty sure I was entering the correct password)
This time, I wrote down the password and used only lower case letters. Now, when I try the password, again, it says I am incorrect. Completely insane since I am typing in the correct password.

Shouldn't be I have a password and it works fine for me. You are typing:
Then it prompts you for a username and password. Maybe you are using the incorrect username?Torch 9810 Bridged with 32GB Playbook

I have the same problem since day one with my playbook on my imac. I can connect as guest. But it's just keep gnawing at me that I cannot connect as me. I have no idea what password it was looking for. Is it from my blackberry account or my imac account?

Is Network Magic involved. If so, have to work with it.
Are you matching the level of Wifi security on your Playbook to the on your network?
Have you looked at the Newbie thread, including the WMM settings. I had to change those to keep a good connection, which is different from your problem of not being able to connect

I'm a bit confused. You can reboot your PB, and enter your password, and the PB will start up. You can come out of standby and enter your password, and it will work fine. You can try to enter development mode and enter your password, and the PB will accept it. But when you try to disable the password in security settings on your PB, the PB prompts you for your password, you enter it, and it tells you your password is incorrect?
OK- nevermind- I see this thread is 8 months old.

If it's asking for username and password try "playbook" without quotes as username and your normal password.
Please let us know if this works, and kudos to welshyyyyy for posting this tip yesterday.
