My main source of internet is a DSL connection which is obviously a problem for Kindle which seems to be made for Wi-Fi. I have only been able to put books I order on my Kindle when I'm using Wi-Fi, for example, at somebody else's house. Is there some way I can retrieve the books I order on Kindle through my DSL connection? Thanks, Andi

Add a wi-fi router to your DSL modem.

Like this: Medialink - Wireless N Broadband Router - 150 Mbps - 2.4GHz - 802.11n w/ Internal Antenna

Alternately, you can connect the Kindle to your computer using a micro-usb cable. It then shows up as an "external drive", and you can drag and drop files to it. AmazonBasics USB Cable - 2.0 A Male to Micro B (6 Feet / 1.8 Meters)

DSL is high speed and can easily support wifi. You can purchase your own router, as Erich suggested, or you can try calling your ISP and see if they will provide one.

Ok cool, my thanks to both of you... I will look into the Wi-Fi router options.

As Anastasia said, you can check with your DSL provider to see if they can give you a wireless router. Be careful though, sometimes they charge a small fee per month for "router rental". Even at a "cheap" $5/month, you're better off buying your own for $50. In the long run, it's cheaper. Some providers will give you a wireless router at no extra cost, so it's worth checking.
