Does anyone else experience this? When I go to hit the Silk browser it goes to the screen and then switches back it was working earlier and now it won't even allow me to connect to anything in my emails. so frustrating

If your kindle that was working juste fine is now unable to connect to your Wi-Fi, it could be due to an IP Address conflict. Check your router connection hub (at the page "http://home" in my case), pages Wireless, Mac filtering and look if two devices have the same IP Address and if one of them has the MAC Address of your Kindle (that you will find in Device Info of your Kindle). If so, remove your Kindle from the page Mac filtering. Now, with your Kindle, join your network!

Kindle Fire HD. I live in southern Italy and since they moved all the satellites in February this year the only way I can get UK TV is via my Kindle which until 2 days ago was absolutely fantastic via ''FIMONTV'' brilliant service. Anyway, I digress. I read the above solution from ''Jerad Heffner'', swiped the top of the screen down, pressed on ''Wireless'' pressed and held down my router name, it asked me to ''Forget Network'' which I pressed and it disappeared, but almost before I could lift my finger off the screen there it was back again asking me to input the password. I did this and ''By Jove Carruthers'' I was on-line once again. Time taken about one minute, stress relieved, unknown, but lots, so no valium tonight after all. Just some good old Brit TV. Thanks Jerad you are a star amongst men.

when connecting my wi-fi to my Kindle fire after using it away on vacation, I accidentally hit "forget" instead of cancel. Now I don't get an option to enter my password, it just says "authentication failed" in red. Any way to fix this> I already rebooted my router, and signal strength is Excellent

I am have a Kindle HD 8.9. It has worked perfectly for 6 months. I have been able to connect to WIFI and use the internet in several locations. Recently it would not connect to any WIFI even if they were know to work in the past. Checking my WIFI settings, it says its OFF, but when I press the ON button, nothing happens

Since I find this process a little bit complicated, does it mean it would be a good idea for me to buy another table, let's say, an iPad?

Problem:
Unable to register or access any web address.
Given:
* Kindle Fire 1st generation.
* System version 6.3.3_user_4112920
* Router is NETGEAR WNR 2000 (Wireless N etc)
* WiFi connects, Open security, (Security based on allowing only specific MAC address)
* Kindle Fire 2nd generation? running system version 10.4.9 has no problems connecting to WiFi or accessing internet
* The 1st gen Kindle Fire did not have a problem in the past (a year ago?)
* I'm able to register and communicate to the web when I attach to the iPhone 5 hot spot instead.
* The Fing app scans the network and only sees itself and the router, the 2nd gen Fire sees 15 devices, ditto my iPad.
Experiment:
After reading the list above I thought "Could this be a Wireless 'G' vs 'N' problem?".
I set my router to 54 megabits per second rather than "Allow 300 megabit".
The problem disappeared!!
I was able to register and access the web and the Fing app now reported seeing 16 devices.
Conclusion:
This is a Kindle Fire 1st generation software problem.

I've been connected to our home Wifi for over a month now, and everything has been working just fine... everything except my Kindle Fire, when suddenly 2 days ago, it says I need to check my connection... my connection on my Kindle Fire says "connected"... strength shows 100%... everything else in the house works ... but my Kindle (when I try to connect to the internet, or the weather app etc) comes back with the message it can't connect. I've turned off the Kindle, let it sit for a couple of hours, turn it back on, try to connect, no go... yet the signal still shows connected and strong signal....

but what if I tried public wifi connections and I still have the same problem?

have gone thru 3 fire8.9. browser and wifi are inadequate. also fire should come with pre-installed securiy. will be looking for another product. apps are lacking. amazon should have offered 2nd browser. kind of hard to work onthe internet without a decent browser. will not buy again...sp

THIS IS THE SOLUTION: I had problems for weeks with connecting to the internet when I was at work or at home (the kindle fire hd would say connected but had an "x" with the WIFI bars and would not actually connect to the internet). The only way I could make WIFI work correctly was to reboot the kindle each time. ------ So, the easy solution was to simply turn on BLUETOOTH and have it paired with our stereo device. Once I did that it completely solved the problem! Now WIFI works perfectly whether I have the bluetooth turned on or off. Yea!

I have never had this problem until now myself. Nothing has changed in my home or with my service until now. I am at a loss, someone please assist us. It says it's connecting to internet, but the little icon in top right corner has an x across it & network error messages.
