If you, OP, wants to get the NC back then you should take advantages of the Wifi issue.
"hey, hon, you take my lovely Galaxy Tab and hand me the buggy Wifi NC, I just want to show you how much I love and care for you, you see, I give you the good and I'm willing to take the bad".
Get the Nook back first then fix the wifi issue later.
