Hello.

Reset your Kindle.

There's a little hole inside the battery cover area. Put in a pin or paperclip end and press. The Kindle should unlock.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: UNABLE TO CONNECT MY KINDLE

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 NETGEAR 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. 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 WPN824v3 belongs to the "RangeMax" series of NetGear routers. In combination with certain Netgear wireless network adapters, it can be set up to use a proprietary modification of 802.11g exclusively (108Mb/sec, doubling the 54Mb/sec for 802.11g), not allowing for standard b or g connections. Make sure it allows standard b+g connections, too.
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.

Hi, the MAC address filtering settings can be accessed by logging into your router's configuration software (type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit Enter, then type in your username and password) and going to the Wireless tab and beneath that, Wireless MAC Filter. You can either choose Disable to turn the MAC filter off completely, or you can choose Edit MAC Filter List and add your Kindle's MAC address to the list of approved devices.

Ask someone for the password, or if this is your router then you may need to factory reset the router and setup a new password

Probably location from Wifi router. I know some of the areas of my older home don't receive a good signal. Check your wifi bars and see if this is a problem due to only one green bar showing as a connection. Rich

Go to the main Amazon Kindle Support web page then select your model of Kindle device from the ones shown.

There is a Getting Started Guide for each Kindle model - I have given the link for the Kindle 3 3G WiFi model.

There are further guides on setting up other aspects of the Kindle including Connecting with WiFi etc.

My Kindle (version 3) suddenly won't connect to my wireless network. I've re-entered our wireless passcode, but still doesn't work.


On a wifi connection when you see problems the cause will either be the device or the wifi router.
If you can try the kindle out on a different network this will tell you if it is the kindle or the network. If it connects then it not the kindle. It could be a setting or the router.

If it is a setting the two biggies are going to be something wrong with the security passcode or it isn't getting through the gateway out onto the internet. For settings you need to check things like using wep when it should be wpa or the wep key is 64bit when it needs to be 128 or in the wrong key location and so on.

When it can't get through the gateway that usually means your dhcp is wrong or you are using fixed ip. You can just set these numbers manually in the kindle.

The other usual suspect is that the router itself is beginning to fail. This usually shows up first as difficulty to connect and dropped connections or increasing errors. It will eventually fail. This is common and typical of all home grade wifi routers. They are good for about 18 months or so. If this is the case you might notice slow downs or dropped connections on other wifi devices. These units are not repairable so you just need to replace it.

Out of all the possibilities I would say your first choice would be the security settings and next would be the the router. Those are the two most common problems.
