Are you using WEP 1 or WEP2 on your router? It may be that the Kindle doesn't like one or the other.

Also check to make sure that when you put the key in, you are following the case of the key, as they are case sensitive.

Wireless router password is not being accepted by my kindle 0682 first gen.


The encryption on the router might be too recent for your old Kindle to understand. When the Kindle came out, it probably could understand WEP protocol, then came WPA and WPA2 etc. Modern routers would likely be using WPA2 and the Kindle doesn't understand that.
If you can, turn off any security settings on the router and then try to connect the kindle again. If it connects then it was definitely the security settings!

My kindle will not accept my Wi-Fi password


Bernadette,

Are you entering the code that is listed under the SSID? It is on the side or bottom of your modem or router. It can also say WPA or WEP key those letters and numbers should be your password unless you changed it to a personalized one.

Iphone 4s will not accept password to d-link di-524


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.

Router won't recognise my new Kindle


First try rebooting the router to see if it "see' the kindle. Make certain use are using the correct network password/key - it is case sensitive. Does the Kindle connect to other WiFi networks? If not the Kindle may be the issue

The ultimate answer is a factory reset of the router.

I bought an Amazon "Kindle" Wi-Fi reading device


Hi,

I do not recommend that you use WEP for security as this is no longer a secure method for wireless network.

Setting up a wireless network can be a bit tricky at times, but if you follow this step by step guide for Linksys routers, you will have your wireless network up and secure in no time.
It will walk you through resetting the wireless router and quickly setting up a securing your network.

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.

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.

My iPhone does not connect to the Zoom X6 DSL modem. I can connect my laptop and a couple other wireless devices but not my iPhone. Is there a setting I should change either on the router or on my iPhone?...


there is 2 possibility 2 change in router first WEP or wpa security code if in your router need password for connect it then you need to find that key code to enter in iPhone.
Second if in router MAC filter is enable then you need to add your iPhone MAC address in allow list of router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.

Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
First find the mac address of your iPhone in network setup menu then add that mac id in mac filter of router configuration menu.Then save settings and check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
