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:

  • If it shows "OFF", wireless connectivity is deactivated and you cannot access the internet from your Kindle, or download books.
  • If it shows "Wi-Fi", the Kindle is connected to a Wi-Fi network. The five bars right of the symbol represent the connection's signal strength, the more bars are black, the better.
  • If it shows "3G", you are connected via 3G mobile data service. The bars right of this symbol refer to mobile phone service signal strength, much like a mobile phone would show you.
If you do not have internet connection with wireless LAN at home, you need to set up your Kindle to use the 3G service. This is the default setting when the device is delivered to you, and I believe it worked until you or somebody else inadvertently changed the configuration.
Follow this step-by-step procedure:
  1. Switch on your Kindle.
  2. Press the "Home" button.
  3. Check the status bar. Does it show the "3G" symbol? If yes, how about signal strength? If you are somehow blocked from mobile phone antennas in your area, signal strength will be low and the Kindle will not have internet access. Move around and see if it becomes better.
  4. Does it show the "OFF" symbol? If yes, press the "Menu" button. A menu of commands should open. Use the four-way button just below "Menu" to underline the top-most option "Turn Wireless On" and press the center of the four-way. The menu list will close, and after a moment Kindle will try to connect to the internet.
  5. Does it show the "Wi-Fi" symbol? If yes, I assume you accidentally connected to a neighbor's Wi-Fi network and its firewall protected, or is too far away to use it. In this case, press the "Menu" button to open the command menu. Use the four-way button just below "Menu" to underline "Settings", second option from the bottom, and press the center of of the four-way. The settings menu will open. Use the four-way button to navigate down to "Wi-Fi Settings" (the text "view" must be underlined) and press the center of the four-way. The list of Wi-Fi networks open. Navigate down using the four-way to any network with the text "forget" on it and press the center of the four-way.
Please let me know if you encounter problems in following these instructions, and I'll try to assist you further.

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.

How do I find server password


If you mean the router, just type the IP address in the browser. (This could be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, usually it's display in the bottom of the router). If everything is correct, a pop up windows is display with 2 squares, one for user and the other for password; 90% of the time the user and password is "admin".
Once inside, search or look for wireless>security, and the password should be display.
In order to do this, first you must be connected to the wireless, or it just won't work. If it's a PC server, look for the administrator and ask him/her.

This can be caused by a number of issues most have to do with the router itself and not the tablet. First, let's make sure the router DHCP Server is not frozen so take the following steps:
Step 1: If the router is separate from the Cable or DSL Modem, power down the router/wireless, next power down the cable/dsl modem. Power up the cable/dsl modem wait 60 seconds then power up the router/wireless wait 2 minutes
Step 2: Try to connect to the wireless
Step 3: If you have a modem or wireless router supplied by Comcast, Verizon, AT&T or any major carrier, contact them asking them to walk you through resetting and rebooting and updating the firmware to the router/wireless.
Step 4: After the reset and update try to connect, if it fails move on
Step 5: Log into the wireless/modem - let's change the wireless encryption. Go to the wireless settings, change the wireless settings to WPA Personal and add any pass-phrase. Try to connect using the new pass-phrase.
Step 6: If you still can not connect, as a last resort switch the wirlesss encryption to WPA for testing. Try to connect, if this works contct the vendor and have the modem replaced.

My Kindle is not connecting Via 3G. It is 3G enabled.


The information provided below was tested on a Kindle 2, international version with Wi-Fi and 3G.



The Kindle automatically searches for the best connection signal in the area you're in. But for that, you first need to check if the wireless mode is turned on.



If you can see the signal strength bars next to the battery icon at the top, it is on. If close to the battery icon you only see another icon marked OFF, then you need to change that, as follows:



Press MENU,



Move the 5-way controller button up, till the selecting bar is under "Turn Wireless On" and press it once.



The Kindle will start to look for the providers in the area. The kind of connection it is connected to will be shown next to the battery icon and can be 3G, 2G, GPRS, EDGE and 1X. But to see this information, you need to press the MENU button, because it is not shown in the normal view.



That icon at the top indicates the connection that was established by your device.



Another way to check the connection you have is via the settings display, in an undocumented feature. Here, a note of caution: THIS IS A FEATURE NOT DOCUMENTED IN THE KINDLE MANUAL AND YOU WILL BE USING IT AT YOUR SOLELY DISCRETION. IF YOU SELECT A NETWORK THAT DOES NOT PROVIDE THE RIGHT SERVICE, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONNECT YOUR DEVICE - YOU SHOULD BETTER LET THE AUTOMATIC SELECTION MODE ON.



If you still want to proceed, you need to press MENU, select Settings and, when the Settings screen is displayed, press type 311.



A warning note indicating that the connection will be lost momentarily and that you may not successfully reconnect to the Amazon Whispernet networks appears. Selecting OK in this panel will take you to the "Available Wireless Providers" screen and the Kindle will take a while to scan all the networks available in your area.



A list of the networks found will be displayed. You can move the cursor and select the one you want, pressing the 5-way controller button. But it is better to select the "Switch automatically" option and let the best option be selected by the Kindle.



I hope these tips can help you solve your problem. Good luck!

Internet explorer connection


Hi there,

This problem could be due to your DNS settings or your IP Address. First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the new computer. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device.

Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your new computer. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your new computer.

Your IP Address is crucial in order for your new computer to connect properly to your network. Your DNS Server is crucial in order for your new computer to access the internet through your network.
