Jofallon, I don't know what's going on, but I'm experiencing the same problem. There are three Nooks inb my family, and suddenly all three are having this problem. They will connect to the wifi and say that they're connected to the internet, but nothing will load. I was able to download a bookon Friday the 27th, but when I tried again last week, it refused to work. I checked the other Nooks and got the same result.
Everything else that's dependent on the wifi is working perfectly well.

Are you sure the problem wasn't with B&N's servers? That has happened before. Keep trying and see if the problem resolves itself before you invest in a new device.

Apparently, the problem is with the servers. I called CS yesterday on an unrelatedmatter and mentioned what was going on. The rep admitted that their servers were causing them fits and had been for some days. He told me he thought they had a handle on the problem now and it should be fixed soon if it hadn't been already. I tried my Nook after I hung up and it worked perfectly.

Very strange. My Nook downloads a book in a matter of seconds; it's readable in under 10 seconds, even a long book. I just downloaded The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, all 1500+ pages. I was reading it in under a half a minute. And it works in any room in the house. As a matter of fact, when I goto our local BN store, my Nook picks up the signal in the parking lot, several hundred feet away. Go figure.
