Your wireless adapter, the one in your laptop, the laptop we know nothing about because... well who knows why you would withhold that vital bit of information, all I can do is speculate, and speculation is usually counter-productive, and I answer questions on this board to be productive, so what I am getting around to say is that the aforementioned wireless adapter, the one in your laptop, needs to be 5 GHz capable. I would know this if you cared to tell us what make and model of laptop you have as opposed to just the router which we know is 5 GHz capable because you told us. Of course, by posting in the Wireless Network Adapter forum, you can assume that we can look at your post and inherently know all the information about your problem because we are "experts".

Iphone won't connect to Netgear R6200

Yeah that's a dual band router. Which means it operates on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. Sounds like some of your devices only work on the 2.4Ghz. So make sure it is enabled in the configuration.

This video will show you how to get to the config screen on your router.

I have a N wireless Belkin router model F5D8236-4 v2 which works fine with my windows 7 laptop but recently obtained a Kindle and it will not connect, refusing to accept my password. My son connects fine...

I suggest you check two things. 1.) Is your router operating only in "N" mode? 2.) The type of security your router is running maybe something that doesn't work with Kindles.
I looked up the spec on the Kindle. - (Check your router and confirm your using these settings). Supports public and private Wi-Fi networks or hotspots that use the 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n (in b or g compatibility mode) standard with support for WEP, WPA and WPA2 security using password authentication; does not connect to WPA and WPA2 secured networks using 802.1X authentication methods; does not support connecting to ad-hoc (or peer-to-peer) Wi-Fi networks.
If your router is setup with these setting you could try turning off your security on the wireless function of the router just for a test. If the Kindle works without any security then you know that your mode/speed b/g/n is not the problem and you need to setup security differently on your router. If you can try the kindle some with free internet. McDonalds, coffees shop, library, etc. That would confirm the trouble is only at home or with the Kindle.... good luck Kindles are great, hope you get to enjoy it soon. P>S> maybe take it into staples or best buy and asked there tech to check it out.
