I am not familiar with the kindle, however your premis, " but if it was then my laptop would not be able to connect to the Internet. ?" is not exactly correct. When your network was set up someone put a password in to protect your network from having unauthorized connections to it. That password is needed by every computer that has a network card. Someone added that password to your laptop, but if I were to come into your house (invited of course) my computer would see your network name, but I would not be able to access it untill you told me your password and I entered it into my network access. What your kindle is telling you is that you must put that password into its network card, and after that it will remember it just like your laptop. Now if you were to take your kindle to McDonalds, it would not need a password and would connect up. This is because McDonalds operates an "OPEN" network that does not have a password and welcomes everybody to connect up. Remember when you use the McDonalds "OPEN" network, your session would be available to any one that wanted to snoop, and could capture what you wrote including paswords to banks, other networks etc.

You have to enter the WPA share key. The router password is only to access the built in administration web facility. The WPA share key is the encryption key necessary for the Kindle to connect to your router.

Testimonial: "exactly what I needed to know"
SOURCE: I do not have wireless
You are mixing up two things: 3G and Wi-Fi.
3G is a mobile phone data service, supported by selected Kindle devices. Your Kindle 3 3G has a SIM card built inside, just like the fingernail-size chips you put into a mobile phone. Amazon set up contracts with phone service providers in many countries so you can use it to download books to your Kindle at no extra costs for you other than the higher price of Kindle 3 3G compared to the non-3G version. You do not need any extra hardware for this to work, and it will work in most places of the world. This is the guarantee you were promised.
Wi-Fi is a wireless communication standard all Kindle devices support. While most hotels, airports and some restaurants provide free Wi-Fi access for guests, you need your own WLAN router at your home, and pay for your own broadband internet service. The "all sorts of wireless connections which are all password protected" belong to your neighbors and they are password protected so that nobody can take a free ride on the service they pay for.
You can tell the connection status of your Kindle from symbols in in the status bar, at the top right of the screen:
Follow this step-by-step procedure:

Check for a sticker with the SSID: # on your wireless router, use this number. If you don't have a sticker you may have to call your internet provider.

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
