It will automatically use whatever connection is best, so if you have a wireless connection configured, it will use that, but once you are out of range of any configured wireless network, it will use 3G connection.

Firstly, make sure that your kindle is fully charged. Then hold the power switch for 7 seconds. After the light blinks three times, release it. If this does not unfreeze your kindle, hold the power switch for 15 seconds. This should restart your kindle. If neither of these solutions work try contacting amazon kindle support, as they can remotely connec tto your kindle and see what is wrong.

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.

Can not connect to Wi-Fi


Do you mean for the Amazon Kindle store? Provided your wi-fi signal is good, which you can check by trying it with a smartphone etc, the Paperwhite should connect itself to Amazon automatically when in range. If not, try these things

- verify the Pw (Paperwhite) is registered properly (ie Amazon knows it)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201235720

- check your network is listed already on the Pw
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=help_search_1-1?ie=UTF8&nodeId=201241790&qid=1457135457&sr=1-1

- generally speaking
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201852540

If you are talking about wi-fi and using the Pw internet brower, forget that, it is not worth the effort, the Pw browser is such a non-intuitive dog of a thing.

Purchaced a new book. Can't access on my Kindle. Why not??


When you buy a book it goes into your library. You can access Amazon Kindle via the Amazon website and check your library to make sure the book you bought is listed there. If it is not, then something went wrong and your sale didn't register. If your new book is listed in your library then it is available. Make sure your Paperwhite is connected to the Amazon Servers via Wi-Fi or 3G if yours has that option and touch (Cloud) you should see your new book listed in your library. Touch it and it should start downloading. It should not take long for the download to complete and the book to appear on your Homescreen. New books should automatically download the first time you connect to the servers after you buy it. But if they don't for some odd reason manually touching them will cause them to download.

My Kindle paperwhite is frozen. How do I restart?


Forgot my password

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Touch or Kindle Paperwhite:
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Tap the password field to bring up the onscreen keyboard
3. Enter "111222777" and select "OK"

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password, please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer.

How do I connect to the kindle store my kindle will not connect so I may download kindle books?


To connect to the Kindle Store your device must have either a wi-fi connection to the Internet or a 3G Whispersynch connection via a telecom. Some Kindles come with the 3G and some don't. The ones that don't require a Wi-Fi connection.

So, if you have Wi-Fi access the turn off Airplane mode in Settings and enter the Wi-Fi password to your router. If you are using public Wi-Fi such as at McDonalds you might have to
use the experimental browser in setting to be able to click the *accept terms* button or you will not have access even if connected.

How to tune in kindle to wi fi?


From the Home screen, press the Menu button.
Select Settings, and then select view next to Wi-Fi Settings.
In the list of detected networks, choose a network to connect to it.
If your Wi-Fi network and router support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), your Kindle will detect it.
If you don't see your network in the list, you need to add the network manually.
If the network is protected by a password or WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), enter the password and then select Submit.If you don't know the Wi-Fi network password, contact the person who set up the Wi-Fi network.After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the last network used.

Add a kindle to my account


From memory, once you connect your kindle to wi-fi it should give you the option to link it to your amazon account. Failing that, try buying something through the kindle whispernet??
