Connect to a Wi-Fi Network

Your Kindle can connect to Wi-Fi networks or hotspots that use the 802.11b or 802.11g standard. Kindle does not connect to enterprise or ad-hoc Wi-Fi networks (networks that allow peer-to-peer connections without a wireless access point). Keep in mind that you must be within range of one or more Wi-Fi networks in order to connect to one.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network, follow these steps:

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. 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.

6.Choose “submit.” Kindle connects to the Wi-Fi network.

Once you’re 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.

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. For more information, see “Forget a Wi-Fi Network.”
