PlayBook not connecting after Sleep
Hi: Just got a PB and I'm very happy with it apart from a constant failure to reconnect to my home wireless router. Blackberry help spoke English and tried the usual things - delete connection info and restart - without success. But I've noticed several comments on the web about how PBs connect easily everywhere except at home. Why?
Then I looked at my home setup and the router was set for WPA2 Personal. WPA2 requires more 'effort' from a device to connect. I'm sure there is a technical term! So I changed my wireless router to WPA Personal and lo and behold the PB connects every time even in my low signal strength office.
Is this mere coincidence? I imagine that most people have routers set to WPA2 for the additional security provided. My laptops have no problems with this setting. Now I will fret about the lower security of WPA.
Does anyone have a 'proper' solution to the dropped connection problem? Oh, once connected it stays connected.

My PlayBook connects fine with my home network on WPA2 - always has once I entered the passphrase correctly which took me a few tries. But I have seen reports on other forums of people having trouble.
