Yet it works for others (for myself as well), I admit I was surprised when it kept connecting to my work and home computer, but since changing the settings, it no longer does this. (Wired or not) I'm not going to go through the 30 point price check (I really have no clue what your PC settings are like, nor am I sure of what options you enabled in Link, if any) I would look at your system tray and left click BlackBerry Device Manager and Click on Options. Ensure all boxes under Options are unchecked.

Verdict - User Error

You have the original charger that came with the PlayBook (It is on the list of approved chargers for the Z and Q. You can use that, or continue to use a USB to computer charge (slower, but still works). I only use the PB charger, unless I am at work, and just need a top up, then USB is fine.

I'm not sure where all of your chargers went, but you have USB option and you can also use PB charger. A third party OEM charger needing drivers to be installed sounds weird, but shouldn't effect your computer operation.

If the problem is only happening with one of your computers, would it not make sense that maybe your installation is faulty, or some of the BlackBerry services are not initializing? I can be 100% sure that something is off with that computer, as it would be happening with all your computers if the device was at fault.

Windows? Ctrl+Alt+Del (Task Manager) Close all BlackBerry processes running. Make sure Link, B Device Manager and all other BlackBerry services do NOT start up on boot. Restart your computer and connect your device to it.

You asked if they were available. I believe I have shown that they are. Your thoughts on ergonomics and style and ease of use are consumer related questions.
