It could be just a zero (0)--some onscreen character sets show a zero with a stroke to distinguish it from a capital O, so try a plain zero first. If that doesn't work you probably have chosen (why??) a Danish "Oe" (?) for your password, leaving you 3 choices I can think of offhand. 1) You can try to change the password to one with standard characters. 2) Sometimes if you hold your finger down on an onscreen keyboard it will give you variations on the basic letter you've pressed. Try holding down your finger on the "O" key (while in caps lock) and see if you get ? or, if you're lucky, ?. 3) You could try cutting and pasting the ? I've been using into your password and see if it works.

Good luck!

PS -- I see that Fixya won't even accept the "Oe" symbol I've typed when it prints my answer, just showing a "?", so I guess solution 3 is out. Oh, well.

I have a brand new amazon fire 7 and am trying to set it up. First how can I see how much my tablet is powered up? And how do I connect this device to my internet?


Charge it. Press and hold the power button. If shows a battery by itself it's dead and it's not charging. If it's a battery with a lightning bolt symbol it's dead and it's charging. If it turns on, go to settings, find wifi settings, turn wifi on, find your wifi network, and enter the password for your wifi.

My tablet will not connect to the internet


you will need to set up the wifi first , there is a spot in the setup screens that says wifi , go to this and expand it by clicking on it , this will show a list of avail networks (there could be more than one) select yours in the list , a prompt will show up (enter network password ) you must enter your network password exactly as its in your router (or coffee shop router) and press enter when done , it will prompt back with connecting " when its done it will go back to previous screen , make sure your main prompt for wifi is still on then open your browser and enter a desination it should work , I will tell you this model is very picky about signal strength and wont connect unless you have least four bars .

How to connect to internet doesnt recognize router password


Are you sure of Wifi password is correct?
if so, 1st; try restarting your ipad by holding down power/sleep button untill it show "Slide to shut down" leave it off for 10 seconds & then re-open it.enter the Wifi -password, sometimes this step works.

2nd solution ; try resetting your iPad network settings, it will not affect your ipad in any thing except it will forget all entered passwords for any wifi you have already connected before. go to General from Setting, choose resett, and inside only reset network setting, shut down ipad & try to connect to the wifi again. Hope this solution work for you. Also you may try shutting down & opening your router again after 10 seconds while off. Good Luck.

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 10 in. tablet keeps going off wi fi and you can fix it but it still keeps going off.


Marie,

Make sure that you're attempting to connect to the right WiFi hotspot. The tablet may be attempting to connect to a WiFi signal that different from what you expect (a neighbor's, etc.).

Once you're certain that your accessing the intended WiFi signal, attempt your password again. Depending on model tablet, you may be able to keep the password displayed as you type for review before entering to connect. If not, carefully review each character on screen after touching each to see that it is correct (not capitalized, or number or symbol instead). Backspace as needed to make corrections as needed.

After seeing that the WiFi password is being sent properly to the intended WiFi signal, you will connect.

If I am understanding the problem, then you are trying to connect to a network that is password protected (that is what the lock symbol generally means when shown beside a network that has been discovered by your device). It cannot 'authenticate' you until you key in the correct password. However, if that is the case, when you click/touch that network and then touch Connect, it should automatically pop up a box asking for the password. Key in the password (be sure to get upper/lower case correct on any letters), and then touch Connect. If that does not work, or if I misunderstood, then provide additional info and we can try again. Good luck!

Put in wrong password for wifi and then accidentally hit forget and now it wont let me type in a password at all


You need to select the wi-fi website again, and enter the password again. It will then store the password.

If you forget the site, it forgets the password connection to the site and you have to start again.
