Connect using Internet Explorer (or Firefox Mozzila) at the router's settings page. In case you don't remember it, here is a easy way to locate it. Hit start - run - type cmd. At the newblack window type ipconfig and hit enter. You will get the results for bothethernet and wireless connections (if any). Depending on the type of connection you use, locate the "Default Gateway" line. This ip is the router's ip address. Go to the router's settings page and locate the Wireless section - wireless security tab. At the passphrase field is the password you are looking for. At the security mode is the security type that you might be asked for. Don't change anything and just close your Internet Explorer. Use the password that you just locate for your new connection.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

My Kindle paperwhite is frozen. How do I restart?


Forgot my password

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Touch or Kindle Paperwhite:
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Tap the password field to bring up the onscreen keyboard
3. Enter "111222777" and select "OK"

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password, please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer.

Amazon kindle registration


Just a few questions.
is your computer connected to the internet with a wireless connection, or with a cable? Is the internet connection you see on the kindle, the name of your wireless router? Did you setup the wireless connection on your kindle, using your connection name (the name you gave in on the wireless router you own) and password.
If you answered one or more of these questions with a no, first solve or change that. When you don't have the answer, because you don't know, you have to asume it is a no.
please tell us you did setup the wireless connection correct, so I can look to other possibilities.

My wireless connection is disabled how do I correct


  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show Quick Settings, and then tap Wireless.
  2. Verify that Airplane Mode is Off.
  3. Next to Wi-Fi, tap On.
  4. Tap a network to connect to it. If you see a lock icon, a network password is required. Enter the Wi-Fi network password, and then tap Connect.Note: If you don't know the password, check with the person who set up the network. This password is not your Amazon account password.

After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle Fire automatically connects to the network again when it's in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle Fire automatically connects to the last network used.

Forgot pin to my kindle fire hd??


If you can't remember your lock screen password or PIN, you will need to reset your Kindle Fire.

Important: Resetting your Kindle Fire will remove your personal information (including your lock screen password or PIN), Amazon account information, and downloaded content and apps. Any content you purchased from Amazon is automatically saved to the Cloud. You can download that content when you register your Kindle Fire to your account again.

  1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left.
  2. Enter characters into the prompt ten times. You will receive several warning messages. Dismiss the warning messages, and continue entering characters into the prompt.

After you've entered the incorrect password or PIN ten times, your Kindle Fire will reset.

Can not remember password for my amazon kindle


I'm sorry that you forgot the password of Amazon kindle device.


If you cannot remember the password for your Kindle, you can reset your password to regain access. Resetting your password will delete all content on your Kindle and you'll need to register your Kindle again before downloading items from your Kindle Library on Amazon.com.

To reset your Kindle if you don't have the password:

  1. Slide and release the power switch to turn on the device or exit sleep mode.
  2. Enter "resetmykindle" in the password field and press the enter key on the key pad.
  3. Wait several minutes while your Kindle restarts.

Thanks for understanding. I hope the information helpful. Please let me know if you require any further assistance.

My new kindle that was a present from the usa, will not connect to wi-fi, i def have the right password


Have you checked Amazon's Kindle Support page? You may need to contact them to get help. There may be something wrong with your kindle. Make sure other things can connect to the wireless such as a laptop.

How do I find my password and security code on my wireless router.......it is a wireless g, linksys wrt54g2........I am unable to connect to a kindle


Greetings,

Your Wireless password or WEP is located on the backside of your router. It is a combination of letters and numbers. For future reference, most routers give you the option of changing your password to whatever you like. This is a convenient feature. But if your router is still in its factory settings, the password will indeed be located in the back of the router. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.
