@Jeremy: Is there a free wifi hotspot near you, e.g. Starbucks or McDonalds? I guess that you don't have a wifi network at home?

You can't register from the Amazon page any longer. You could at one time but that was removed.

You have to register from the Kindle itself while connected to the internet.

As noted above you must have a wifi connection in order to complete the registration process.

Thanks but how do I register it online?

Actually you cannot register it online anymore. You now need to use WiFi or 3G and register it from the device itself.

What?!? What on earth does a credit union have to do with wifi? Did they give you a router when you opened your account?

If you have internet access at home you have access to wifi by installing a wireless router. If you happen to have FIOS, their modem is a combination modem/wifi router. If you do not have a combo modem/router then you need to purchase a wireless router and install it. You will not incur an additional monthly fee for this access, it is all done under your regular internet access and just needs the hardware.

I received my WiFi as a gift from my credit union, now I find I need WiFI. Yes, I know I can purchase a router, but it is frustrating that I can't do this without extra expense and time.

Thanks, John. Useful info. Now I get it! My router is capable of wireless applications. I've just never set it up that way. I guess I can explore making it so.

Thanks again.

@S. Ducharme: You have to provide the wifi - it is not the same as 3G wireless. You need a wifi router (about $60 or provided by your broadband internet provider) attached to your broadband connection at home, or you need to go to a wifi hotspot at a place like Starbucks or McDonalds or many cafes and libraries.

I'm considering buying a Kindle but have no clue if wifi is in my remote rural area. Does that mean I'd have to physically take the Kindle somewhere that offered wifi to connect before it would be useful to me? Thanks for any insights

Okay then, thank you B. Gonzalez for giving me the correct answer.

You can register it online but will need to connect via wifi at least once.

You can register your Kindle on the Manage Your Kindle page within the Your Account page.

I just got my Kindle today and I am trying to register it; can I do this without wi-fi? If I can register without wi-fi how can I?
