Ensure you have turned on wifi on your tablet, (I assume the router is working already). Then go straight to your internet browser and open your preferred search engine, you should be automatically directed to the routers set up page. You will need passwords to access your router settings.

Our new kindle paper white will not connect to our wifi


The Kindle Paperwhite automatically scans for Wi-Fi networks that are in range of your device. If one networks are found, the device will connect automatically. If a password is required, a screen appears asking you to input that information. Generally, the process is quick and easy.
Occasionally, however, you may need to connect to the Wi-Fi network manually. Follow these steps:
  1. Tap Menu?Settings.
  2. If the network to which you want to connect appears in the list, tap that network.You're finished!
  3. If the network to which you want to connect doesn't appear in the list:
    1. Tap Other.A dialog box named Enter Wi-Fi Network appears, along with the on-screen keyboard.
    2. Using the onscreen keyboard, enter the network name and, if applicable, the password.
    3. Tap the Advanced button.
    4. Work through the series of screens, entering information related to the network, including connection type, IP address, and security type.
      Advance through the screens by using the up and down arrows.
      If necessary, contact the person who set up the network for assistance with filling in this information.
    5. When all the necessary information has been entered, tap the Connect button to join the network.
If your Kindle Paperwhite is connected to your home network but can't connect to Amazon, you may need to reestablish the connection. Tap Menu?Settings?Wi-Fi Networks, and then tap the network that has a check mark to its left. When the Forget Network? dialog box appears, tap Forget. You'll have to reselect the network and enter the password (if one is required).
If you're having trouble connecting to your home network, unplug the Wi-Fi router, wait at least 60 seconds, and then plug it in and wait for the network to restart.
If this does not work....follow this link and do a factory reset.

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.

You can try this and see if it works for you:

Connect to Wi-Fi networks Some of this information applies only to devices running Android 5.0 and higher. If your device is running 4.4 or lower, the Menu icon looks like this 01640868e1517a345806b8352772a19a6aa8. If your device is running 4.3 or lower, the Settings icon looks like this snp_2918920_en_v1.
You can connect to Wi-Fi networks with your device, as well as add networks you use often or remove networks you don't use any longer. You can also change the settings for saved Wi-Fi networks on your device.
Keep in mind that your device will remember networks you connect to, along with security details, and connect automatically when in range.

Turn on Wi-Fi and connect to a network

  1. Open your device's Settings menu snp_bee8810a5fcd80173673b4b15a1804eaee99_3529219_en_v0.
  2. Under "Wireless & networks," touch Wi-Fi.
  3. Touch the Wi-Fi switch to turn it to the On position.
  4. You'll see a list of saved and available networks.
    • Secured networks display a lock icon 9708aea66a4ca95cd2dda6f363c600366de9 and ask for a password to connect.
    • Your device will remember networks it connects to and automatically connect to them when in range.
    • You can forget a saved Wi-Fi network if you don't want your device to connect to it automatically.
  5. Touch a network name from the list of available networks to connect to it.
    • Android 5.0 or higher: If the saved network you want to connect to isn't showing up in the list of networks on your screen, touch the Menu icon e0c84b16c85d9e9f1f5eb1d0111d3421b872 in the top right corner of the screen. Touch Refresh to reload the list of networks. Touch Add network and enter the network's name (SSID) and other security details, if needed. Then touch Save.
  6. Once connected, your device will say "Connected" under the network name.
Once you've connected to a network, it will show up in your Saved networks list. If you have trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, try the following steps:

The Kindle connects to WiFi networks supporting standards 802.11b and g. If your router is configured to use 802.11n exclusively, the Kindle cannot establish a connection. However, you should be able set up your router to "mixed" mode or "b+g+n operation".

The exact procedure and naming of the option depends on your router's model name. If you cannot figure it out yourself, feel free to add a comment to this solution, providing the model name and version of your LinkSys router, and I'll probably be able to give you further advice.

I'm trying to connect my Kindle 3 to my wireless network (Cisco Linksys wireless-N broadband router) and I get the error message "unable to connect to wi-fi network. The password you entered is...


Four reasons come to mind that may prevent you from connecting:
  1. Wi-Fi Passwords are case sensitive. Please check again if you entered the password with proper casing and you did not put any extra white space in front or behind. I know, this sounds annoying, but it is really the most common cause for connection problems.
  2. Give your network a unique SSID. This is the network name that shows up in the list of detected networks. Default names like LINKSYS can be troublesome if a neighbor one block down the street happens to have a router from the same company.
  3. Some routers have a MAC address filter as a security measure, limiting service to devices specifically whitelisted. If your router is set up for this, add your Kindle's MAC address to the list of permitted devices. See your router's configuration under Wireless > Wireless MAC Filter. You can check the MAC of your Kindle from its settings page (press HOME, MENU, select SETTINGS, see paragraph headlined "Device Info".
  4. There are twelve different standards for Wi-Fi transmission collected under the hood IEEE 802.11. The four most dominant transmission modes are called a, b, g and n. They differ in radio frequency, modulation method and data rate. Kindle supports the two standards IEEE 802.11 b and g only, which is not really a problem because all wireless routers I ever encountered support one or both of these, too. However, the Linksys N-series can be set up to use 802.11n exclusively, not allowing for b or g connections. In the router menu Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings (Manual Setup), make sure the network mode is configured as "Mixed".
Please add a comment to this solution if one of these items resolved your problem. If you suffered from a different issue I did not think of, it would be nice to drop me a line, too. Other people will benefit from any experience you made.

You have to enter the WPA share key. The router password is only to access the built in administration web facility. The WPA share key is the encryption key necessary for the Kindle to connect to your router.

Cannot connect ipad to wireless internet


Try going to your Ipad's wifi settings and set the DNS to the same thing as the Router (since you have a linksys, it should be 192.168.1.1).

Just delete everything else in the DNS box.
