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.

I can't get no is 9" tablet to work on WiFi. It connects and says connected but won't pull up authentication screen to sign on to network so I'm not able to fully use internet


try turning the wi fi off on the tablet and then turn the wi fi back on and try to reconnect.
you may need to set up the encryption. It could be set on WPA2 and the tablet may not cope with WPA2 may need to use WPA1 on router .

How do I get wi-fi connection. I have inputted information for the wi-fi it says saved, then when you go to connect it says authentication problem and cannot complete registration.


Hi
To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code. Also bear n mind that the code may or may not be case sensitive, and that the authentication type for both router and tablet needs to be the same. It is possible that you will only be able to change the authentication type on the Aceess Point / router and not on the tablet.
Cheers

How do get wi-fy on my tablet?


It's a good idea to access Wi-Fi whenever possible to avoid data charges. After you've activated the Android tablet's Wi-Fi radio, you can connect to an available wireless network. Obey these steps:
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Choose Wi-Fi.On some Samsung tablets, you find the Wi-Fi item on the Connections tab. Choose Wi-Fi to view a list of available Wi-Fi networks on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, the list shows up full screen.
    433273.image0.jpg
  3. Choose a wireless network from the list.When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding Wi-Fi access from your current location.
  4. If prompted, type the network password.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
  5. Touch the Connect button.
    The network is connected immediately. If not, try the password again.
When the tablet is connected to a wireless network, you see the Wi-Fi Connected status icon. This icon indicates that the tablet's Wi-Fi is on, connected, and communicating with a Wi-Fi network.
Some wireless networks don't broadcast their names, which adds security but also makes connecting more difficult. In those cases, touch the Add icon. This icon might also be labeled Add Wi-Fi or Manually Connect. To make the connection, type the network name, or SSID, and choose the type of security.
You also need the password, if one is used. You can obtain this information from the girl with the pink hair who sold you coffee or from whoever is in charge of the wireless network at your location.
  • Not every wireless network has a password. Still:
  • Be careful when connecting to a non-password-protected network. It's possible that the Bad Guys can monitor such a network, stealing passwords and other information.
  • Some public networks are open to anyone, but you have to use the web browser app to find a login web page that lets you access the network: Simply browse to any page on the Internet, and the login web page shows up.
  • The Android tablet automatically remembers every Wi-Fi network it has ever been connected to and automatically reconnects upon finding the same network again.
  • To disconnect from a Wi-Fi network, simply turn off Wi-Fi.
  • Use Wi-Fi whenever you plan to remain in one location for a while. Unlike a mobile data network, a Wi-Fi network's broadcast signal has a limited range. If you wander too far away, your tablet loses the signal and is disconnected.

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 connect my tablet to wi-fi


Authentication often means "password protection" for the specific wifi connection. Usually your software will present a "dialogue" box telling you a password is necessary and give you an opportunity to enter one.

Cant connect to internet


Well, I may be an 18 yr. old and I may be no wiz but I'm big into computers and there are several solutions to this. 1) If there is a password put in the wi-fi, you need to: have a device in which will be able to put in the type of security and/or put in the EXACT password. 2) Make sure it is YOUR wi-fi you're trying to connect to. And 3) If 1 and 2 don't work, contact the company of which your wi-fi was bought from. I hope this explaination was helpful for your problem.

Authentication problem with wifi


"Authentication Error" usually means when you are clicking on the desired wi-fi network and putting in your password you are making a small error in the password. ChecK:
a - You are putting in the correct CaSe. Most are CaSe SpEcIfIc so if it asks for "F" it means "F" and not "f";
b - You are not leaving any spaces before or after the password (some tablets especially seem to leave spaces.)
c - You are possibly putting in the Router Password. This is useless! you need to out in your Wireless Network KEY.
It came with your ISP letter or on a little card or is printed on the router
in the form of:
Name (SSID) Goodwombat45837
Key: HG56TY78JK88

You would type in HG56TY78JK88

Note hg56ty78jk88 would FAIL, you have put in lower case.

Hope this helps a bit.
