The Playbook wifi has always sucked. At first it will work, load a few more pages, especially youtube or other intensive stuff, then suddenly it just dies out. This is noticeable as the load bar will go 1/3 then just stop. I've read stuff about changing wifi channels and other stuff like that. Should not have to do that especially when everything else works. Tried it to no avail. So I bought some commercial APs thinking it might be better. They have a range of 400ft so I just installed just one as a stand alone. It is a Unifi. Tested with my laptop and it works fine. I'm sitting literally next to it with the playbook, loaded 3 pages then it conked out again. Before I make a youtube video of me smashing it, is there anything else I can try? Is there perhaps a way to just hook it up to ethernet? The reason I bought this was to have a way to control my furnace, I even wrote a full blown web based app for it, but it can't even do that simple task. Been using the computer for it.
