Question about Amazon Kindle DX 3rd Generation

Open Question

I have the same problem as boyboyboy216 with my new Kindle -except in my case I do know my password and I recently bought a new laptop and set it up to connect to my wireless router using that password. However when I do the same for the Kindle, it can see my network name but keeps saying it's unable to connect to internet. I am using an Optus (Australia) Netgear Router.

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 kindle has lost its wi-fi connection. i enter set up my kindle rejects the connection saying i wrong password but i have entred the correct password. how can i correct it?


reset the wifi on the modem it should have a reset some where on it and then forget the network on your kindle, and turn off the kindle and when you turn back on the kindle will find the network again and re enter the password remember the passwords are case sensitive and also it might be readying a space at the end of the password so make sure you hit the delete after the last digit of your password

    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.

    I have no idea what my Wi-Fi password is, so can't activate the Kindle. This is my 4th Kindle; I bought the others with no help, but have no record of Wi-fi password.


    The wifi password is the password installed in the router that allows any and all wireless devices to connect to your wireless network. Unless this Kindle is the only wireless device you have, then you probably know the password, since it was used on all the other devices as well. Even if you don't know it, you may have it. If the router was from the ISP, and you didn't change anything, the wifi password may be written on the base of the router. If you DID change the password and forgot it, as long as you can access the router setup,. you can go in and create a new wifi password.

    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.
