Kindle fire wont connect to open wifi

My first gen kindle fire will not connect to certain open access wifi hot spots, like at the gym (free wifi to guests) or in certain times around my college campus. it says it is connected on the wifi page, but the wifi symbol shows an x at the bottom of it and won't connect to anything. HELP

Here are few steps to resolve kindle won't connect to wifi issue:

  1. Re-connect The Network: Try to solve your problem by reconnecting the network. There would be some common issues that interrupt your network connectivity but easily get sorted out by just reconnecting. First, press the wifi icon and then you look for your network, have you found it? Great, now disconnect and reconnect it.
  2. Remove The Barriers: If there are any barriers like- almirah, wall, curtains or even a person, then either remove them or replace your device, as you like and comfort you. Barriers do not allow the network to pass properly, it unstable the network. So, just consider this point and take action.
  3. Check The Airplane Mode: If you do not know then let us clarify to you that when the Airplane mode is turned on then your network automatically gets turned off. So, check the Airplane mode, make sure it would be off.
  4. Check The Battery Status: Do you know the low battery also leads to network issues? To run the network smoothly and properly without any hurdles, charge your Kindle properly.
  5. Restart The Kindle: If you followed all the above steps properly and are still facing the Kindle fire not connected to the wifi issue then just restart your device once. There are some internal issues that may get solved instinctively on their own. So, just turn off your Kindle, wait for 1 or 2 minutes, and then again turn the Kindle on.

I hope these steps will give you relief from this issue quickly. If still you are facing this issue then check out this article
This will help you.

Sounds like your power cord is dead and that it's not charging. If it's new bring it back to the store you bought it from and get a new one.

I have had Wi Fi on my Kindle Fire and now it will not connect and keeps asking for an IP address

When you connect to Wifi and if it shows "obtaining IP address" means it is searching for the IP address of the wifi sender...
when you connect to internet it is done through IP address so your phone is tying to locate an IP address with which it can connect
to the internet. Below are the steps to connect your device to Wifi:
Applications-->settings-->turn Wifi ON-->select the wifi that you want to connect from the list displayed-->enter the network password(if it asks for) -->connected Another easy way...just open the chrome app in your phone and try typing in some website like when it tries to connect a pop up will appear "try connecting to WiFi data will incur charges.." something of that sort...and you can click connect to wifi...and automatically it will detect the wifi that is around your location. You can check for your IP address through

First, make sure you are not in airplane mode (this shuts down the wifi).
