Question about Cisco Linksys E1000 WirelessN Broadband Router Network Routers

Help! I need to set the security log in again. I can log into my laptop and my desktop, because they log in automatically. But my new Kindle needs to log in, and I cannot find the password. Should I just reset everything? Will that require the disk (I cannot find that either!) thanks sandy

If you cant find the password or remember it you'll have to do a hard reset on your router.

You can do a hard reset by plugging it in, locating the small hole on the bottom or side with possiblitly the words reset next to it. Insert a pin for about 10-20 seconds and the device should revert to the default settings.

You can then set up a new SSID and password.


A tip to help me remember is to write the password down and tape it to the bottom of my wifi router.

Enjoy your Kindle.

I have a Kindle Paperwhite and a Kindle Fire. I'm trying to get both devices combined in the same account.


If you got to the Amazon Kindle website (using a laptop or desktop is better because of the typing involved) and log in and re-register both devices to the same email and password they will automatically show up as two devices on your one Kindle account and you should be able to use them to share the books on your cloud. The way I understand it is if you have two different user ID's and passwords, you will have two different clouds.

My old kindle quit working and I bought a new kindle fire. How can I add my old kindle account to my new kindle fire?


What you really need to do is add your new Kindle device to your
existing Amazon Kindle account. The good news is if you bought it from Amazon new, Amazon automatically registers it to your existing account. So . . .

Go to the Amazon website using your laptop or desktop computer and log onto your Amazon account.

1)On the upper right of the page you should see *Hello (your name)*
Drop down this menu by hovering your mouse pointer on it.

2) Select *Manage your content and devices*

3) If you're not logged in, enter your Username and password.

4) If you're browser is set to save passwords an log in you won't
need to do step 3

5) Select the *Your Devices* tab

6) All your Kindle devices should be listed there, including the new
Kindle Fire.

7) You can click on your old Kindle and *deregister* it.

8) You can make your new Kindle Fire your *default device* and
you can edit your other Kindle devices such as any Android
Device onto which you have installed the Kindle App.

9) The default device status ensures new books purchased will
automatically download to that device when it's connected to
the internet via Wi-Fi or 3G depending on what your Kindle Fire
is configured with.

10) You can click on the *Settings* tab to manage your credit card and other information.

How doi I remove my books from my kindle? I want to give this kindle to my cousin.


You can touch the book where it's listed on the Homescreen and hold the touch for a second or two. A menu will come up and there will be an option to *Remove book from device*.

If you are gifting your Kindle, any books on your Kindle Cloud will still be available unless your un-register the Kindle from your account. You can do this on the Amazon Kindle site on the internet by logging on using a laptop or desktop and selecting that option in *Settings*.

My new kindle fire keeps rejecting my password so i cant sign in


Access your wireless router and change the security settings from WPA or whatever to none and APPLY or SAVE.

Then immediately after, change the security setting back to the orginal security setting WPA or whatever.

Try it again.

If no joy, go to your Kindle and find the wireless settings and find the entry for your wireless router and delete or forget that network.

Restart your kindle and try logging into the wireless router again.

Why wont amazon let me access into my kindle I have put my password in and it has never changed since I got my kindle.?


Your change to Windows 8 is the problem. Amazon like other online providers now recognise the computer that you logon with. It objects if you change computers as a security risk. You need to contact Amazon and get them to register your new computer as belonging to you, and not a security risk.

I have an Amazon Kimble and now have a new WuFi service. I don't have or don't rember ehw password so I can't get into the store to download books. Can you help?


Is it WiFi in your home? If that's the case, and, you still can't remember/find your network's username and password--try resetting the wireless router (or access point--AP) to default factory settings. Use your PC or laptop to reenter factory settings with the router's/AP's networking address entered into a browser (likely Internet Explorer)--it should appear as something like 168.192.0.1 (depending upon your particular router)--it's in the manual.

If you don't have a manual, download the PDF version from the router/AP manufacturer online. Navigate within the menus provided on your PC's/laptop's screen. One of the menus should offer default factory reset. Indicate "Yes." (If you can't read a PDF file on your PC/laptop, download and install the free Adobe Reader from adobe.com.)

Once the router is reset, the manual indicates the temporary username and password to use for WiFi. This is the time, though, to invoke security once again for the router/AP--enter a sensible and secure username and password--something memorable, yet difficult for others to determine. Use letters, numbers, and even certain special characters. Follow the instructions to set up security, replacing the simple username and password--use WPA2 or WPA (encryption). WPA2 is the most secure.

Now's the time to configure the Kindle or other tablet: You need to find the WiFI settings menu in your Kindle--after enabling WiFI in the tablet, find your router/AP user name you just configured via your PC/Laptop in the Kindle menu--perhaps among those from other WiFi signals from neighbors or businesses. Choose your username, and enter the password. It should connect--securely now.

In a few locales in America (say, in California), not configuring security even proves illegal. Always secure your wireless network--people actually may scan for networks in order to share bandwidth--or, far worse, to garner sensitive personal info and otherwise hack in. Even these days, many people refuse to take sensible steps towards security--they're happy to get a connection of any type--not being locked out of their WiFI by forgotten security, either. That's a "shortcut to thinking."

If at any time you pressed the reset button on the router, it resets it to the factory, out of the box, settings. Have you tried logging back into the router just like when you first set up the laptop and kindle? you may have to start from scratch or log into the router to check what is connected via numbers.

Recheckyour password at the router. start your browser on the laptop and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. A pop up window should appear for you to "log into" your router. IF you have never done this then leave the user name blank and type "admin" in the password. Once your connected to the router, choose "wireless" from the top menu and go to wireless security. Make sure your security settings are set and what the "pass phrase" is. maybe reset a pass phrase and choose WPA for the settings.

Can't get internet wireless


Log in to your router ( http://192.168.1.1 ) and go to the Wireless settings. Check your parameters, security modes, passwords. Using this info, try again to get to your wireless signal (your wireless on the laptop) should show up and let you log in. If the wireless function is not found, you need to install drivers for it onto the new hard drive. This ought to take care of the problem!
