    Problem: Browser speed is not as fast it used to be, websites take longer to load sometimes and fast sometimes and most times main websites such as google won't load until I refresh a few times. Browser crashes on its own, when 4 or 5 tabs open.OS usually buggy.. I'm on the latest one 1.8 or something don't know. Now I read somewhere, that I need to wipe os complete nd den install os during updates I have never done since I bought it first day. Let me know, guys. BTW I LoVe my PB! Nonetheless....

    I was having the same problems, ended up being my router. The internet is a system, one link fails, they all fail. Good luck!

    [cleanup] ^^^ Is the first thing to do.

    Then, tell us what OS you're actually on.
    For this, hit the gear on PB desktop top right (parameters), choose General (left list) and then select the Operating system into the dropdown. If you never made an update ... you could be sticked in an antique OS version !

    Last, deleting and setting up again your wifi connexion may smoothen things ... but let's wait first for the two previous tips / returns.

    Hey guys thanks for the replies! I tried deleting history and cookies didn't make a difference, its the latest OS 1. Whatever the new os version is. I am guessing it might be the router as well, but need to try wiping OS first. I will let you guys know!

    BB ALL THE WAY!

    Read the sticky on Tips Tricks and Fixes below my signature.

    If you do believe it is your router, we would need to know what brand router you have to be of more help.
    Let us know!

    Mine does it too. 1.0.8.6067 software. Clearing the browser only helps for a little while - I clear all including cookies. I have a Cisco e3000 wireless router and a crappy Clearquest modem. The Playbook's wifi has always been flaky. I am soooo hoping that OS2 brings improvement.

    I do find it happens on bridge too, but much less often. That might be because of the 4G network.
