About synchronizing Wi-Fi and VPN profiles

When you connect your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to your BlackBerry smartphone using BlackBerry Bridge, your saved Wi-Fi profiles and VPN profiles on your smartphone are automatically added to your tablet to make connecting to the networks you use easier. Then, when you use your tablet in a Wi-Fi coverage area where you've previously used your smartphone, your tablet connects to the access point.

For security reasons, Wi-Fi profiles and VPN profiles that are associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server are not synchronized. Passwords for secure networks are also not synchronized.

If a profile requires a client authentication certificate, you must import the certificate manually.

Tip: You can edit your network profiles to reorder how quickly your tablet attempts to connect to a network or to add other information, such as passwords for secure networks.
