You will be asked for a password only if you are connecting to a password protected WiFi network.You can set a password for your Home WiFi modem and after that you have to enter the password whenever you try to connect.

SOURCE: Unable to Connect to WI-FI with my Samsung Galaxy

I just had this same problem - I suspect it may have been a new app I installed that changed some settings.
I fixed mine by going into Settings>Mobile Network settings, then tick "Use packet data". Worth a try.

How do I change the password on the kindle for the wireless network?


To add a new Wi-Fi Network:

If you don't see the network you want to connect to in the list of detected networks, you can add it by choosing "Enter other Wi-Fi network" at the bottom of the list of detected networks.
  1. Make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
  2. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  3. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  4. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
  5. Use the 5-way controller to navigate down to "Enter other Wi-Fi network" and press to select.
  6. Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
  7. Enter the password (if required). Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard. You can continue to use the keyboard while the Symbol menu is displayed.
  8. Choose "submit." Kindle connects to the new Wi-Fi network.
If your Kindle fails to connect to the new Wi-Fi network, it will display an "unable to connect" message. You can try manually entering all the network information for the Wi-Fi network by choosing "set up network" when you see the "unable to connect" message. If you don't know the network information, try connecting to a different network, or contact the network's administrator.

To forget a Wi-Fi network:

You can tell Kindle to forget the Wi-Fi network you're connected to so that your Kindle doesn't connect to it automatically in the future.
  1. While connected to the network that you want to forget, press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. The Wi-Fi network you are currently connected to displays the word "forget" next to it in the list of available networks.
  4. Choose "forget" to disconnect from the network.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. Kindle automatically scans for available Wi-Fi networks at periodic intervals. To rescan for available networks at any time, select "rescan."
  4. Select "connect" to connect to a network. If you see a lock symbol next to "connect," the network requires a password to connect.
  5. If necessary, enter the Wi-Fi network password, and choose "submit." Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard.
Once you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the network that was most recently used.

Tip: Once your Kindle connects to a Wi-Fi network, that network displays "forget" next to it in the list of available networks. Selecting "forget" disconnects your Kindle from that Wi-Fi network and also prevents Kindle from automatically connecting to it in the future.

My new Nexus 7 wont go past the "Select Wi-Fi" screen although I have set the Wi-Fi up


I assume you're using a secure Wifi connection with a password and it seems like that authentication is not working. You could try using an open wifi access point to eliminate the possibility of this authentication issue.

How to put in sim card


Assuming you mean the 2013 version but I'll try both,
so for the 2013 version
  1. Turn your tablet off and place it on a flat surface with the screen facing up.
  2. Tilt the right side slightly up to find the SIM card tray near the bottom right and the small hole in the tray door.
  3. Insert a paperclip into the hole in the tray door, and push firmly but gently, the tray should pop out.
  4. snp_8a30b60eaed5a3a37f46a8c715167552992e_3271601_en_v0Remove the tray and place the micro SIM card inside it, the angle corner fits with the angled indent
  5. Push the tray it gently back into the tablet.
  6. snp_8a30b60eaed5a3a37f46a8c715167552992e_3271604_en_v0

Activate SIM card

  1. Open the Settings app snp_2918920_en_v1 and turn off Wi-Fi after completing the set-up instructions. Once Wi-Fi is off, you'll see a notification at the top of your screen.
  2. Swipe down the notification shade and touch the notification.
  3. Follow the activation instructions provided by your carrier.


For the Nexus 7 (2012) 3G use the same process noting that the tray slot and pinhole is on the left side of the device when its facing up.



*Note* : Only the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE & Nexus 7 (2012) 3G can accept a SIM card. Wi-Fi versions of the tablet can't.

I have to enter my password several times to get my kindle to log on. I always have to log on..the signal seems to be weak adjacent to the router. authentication failed is a normal response on my kindle....


your kindle device should be able to connect the network automatically , if this is not happening try adding the network manually.
1.First, make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
2.From the Home screen, tap Menu and select Settings.
3.Select Wi-Fi Networks to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
4.Tap Join to enter network details.
5.Use the onscreen keyboard to enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
6.Once the Network Name has been entered, tap the Password box and enter Wi-Fi password / Network Key using the onscreen keyboard (if required).
Tip: Tap the 123 key to enter numbers or symbols. Tap the ABC key to return to the regular keyboard. Tap the Shift key (up arrow) to enter uppercase characters. Your password may include non-English letters (accents, umlauts etc.). To view accent options, press and hold a letter down, and accent options appear.
7.Tap Connect

Does all your wireless devices have weak signal issues?If so , Then problem may be with the wireless router.Try changing the wireless channel on the router by logging into the router interface page.
Authentication failed is the message u ll normally get when u enter the password incorrectly.

I cannot connect to our office wi-fi connections. It says authentication failed. how can i able to connect. pls help me.


Hi,Please try these steps:-
Wireless router side
  • 1. Set wireless mode to B-G Mixed
  • 2. Standard Channel = 8
  • 3. Encryption - TKIP

Phone side
  • 1. Delete the configured wireless connection/s if you already have one.
  • 2. Enable wi-fi but do not perform search at the moment
  • 3. Now open the browser and select settings then browser profiles press search for wi-fi.
  • 4. Select the connection that you want to connect to then type the details and match the settings on the router.
  • 5. Auth type = WPA, encryption = TKIP, network key = router pre-shared key, protocol = HTTP, Home URL = address of modem (you can change it later if everything is already working), leave proxy blank, linger = default, adhoc = off, no need to do advance settings.
  • 6. Save the settings and do not connect yet.
  • 7. Exit the browser and go to Wi-Fi and select the connection that you have just configured and select details.
  • 8. Check all the settings if ok. if the channel is different with the router, adjust it on the router to match the one used by the phone. IP address = not connected (it will automatically connect once you browse the internet).
  • 9. Now, try to browse the internet but you must set first the connection you've just configured as default connection.
hope rhis will be helpfull to you. Please rates me. goodluck.............
