SOURCE: my wi fi is not connected. How do I do that/

I picked 1 up for the first time and connected in 2 minutes.
In settings page where you add a wireless connection, you will need to know..
Security type, mine was wpa2 ( may be wpa/wpa2/wep)
SSID, your network name that is transmitted, mine was default
password, whatever the wireless password you chose with wpa, if you have wep, it gives you a pass key, you will need to log onto your router to get this

SOURCE: Downloading books

If you have the 3G model of Kindle then you can download books using 3G which is like you would use with a mobile phone.

If you don't have 3G then you will need to connect to a WiFi network in order to download books directly to the Kindle. See the Connecting With WiFi Guide for details of how to do so.

You can also transfer books directly from your PC to your Kindle using a USB lead - see the video guide on how to do this.

SOURCE: wi-fi not obtaining IP address and if turn off wi-fi can not get to turn back on

Assuming you're trying to connect via wireless router. If you connect, but then aren't able to get to the Internet. I would something is wrong between the router to the modem to the wall (DSL/Cable modem) rather then your tablet device. You can connect your device to your router and you device will show it has a wifi connection, but beyond the router something may be amiss. Try seeing what you get from another device like computer or laptop. That might get you closer to your actual issue,

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.

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.

I reset my kindle and cannot get table of contents. I am showing the covers of the books instead of listings.


It sounds like you might be looking at the Kindle Store.

Try touching the top of the screen. This should cause some icons to display. Touch the Home icon. You should then see a list of books that are stored locally. If the reset wiped them all out and they don't show then you'll have to touch the top of the screen again and then touch *Cloud* after connecting to 3G or Wi-Fi and select the books from your Cloud that you want back on your device.

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.

Won'connecct to online sites


You don't mention if you have a 3G tablet, or do you rely on a wi-Fi hotspot on your computer or phone to connect your tablet?
On your tablet, go to settings,on left column, make sure WI-Fi is on, if not, touch it to enable. Your connection should show up on the right side of screen. press and hold the name of your wi-fi network, it will ask you "forget network" or "modify network" Choose modify network and make sure you type your wi-fi password in( do it again if it is already showing up.) I find it easier to use the feature for displaying what you are typing in. Hope this helps. You can also piggy back on a wi-fi hotspot on your smartphone.
