Your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet might be too far away from the wireless access point or wireless router to connect.
Move your tablet closer and try connecting again.
Verify that you're in a Wi-Fi® coverage area. If you're connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are able
to connect. If you're connecting to an enterprise Wi-Fi network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at
the hotspot.
Verify that the time on your tablet is synchronized with the network time. If the times are different, it could prevent your
tablet from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires you to have a certificate on your tablet and the
certificate has an expiration date).
If the Wi-Fi network doesn't appear in the list of available networks, the network might be hidden. If you know the network
name, try connecting to it manually.
Verify that the options for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out what options to use, for a home network, refer to the
information that came with your router; for an enterprise Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; for a public hotspot,

to connect.

connected when you move from one access point to another.
If necessary, set the root certificate that your tablet should use to verify that it's
connecting to the correct Wi-Fi network. If the network requires a certificate, you
need to transfer it to your tablet before you can connect. For more information, talk
to your administrator.
If necessary, set the authentication certificate that your tablet should use to connect
to the Wi-Fi network. If the network requires a certificate, you need to transfer it
to your tablet before you can connect. For more information, talk to your
and verify that the switch is set to On.
