try turning on bluetooth and then connect to internet make sure your password is correct once it is connected to the internet then shut bluetooth off or vis versa if you are using bluetooth worked for me... there is some type of connection between bluetooth and the internet connection....hope this works for you..

Not connecting to a Wireless Router? I just spent the morning going through all of the hoops online as well as a long conversation with Tech Support. All to no avail. After cold rebooting and returning to factory defaults, I decided to try my Bluetooth connection. It still worked, although the Amazon version of Android wont connect to IOS devices. Anyhow, after shutting down the Bluetooth, I was connected to my router and the internet. Evidently there is a connection between the two. So, before you do a "return to defaults" cycle your Bluetooth.

I don't get that message. It says I have a strong signal. And I have tried to add a new network, that didn't work either.

My Kindle Fire HD 8.9 will not connect to the internet. It says I have a strong signal but will not connect. I reset to factory settings the first time it happened since this was the only thing that worked. The next time I used the Kindle it would not connect again I went back to factory settings but this time it would not connect at all. It just keeps trying to authenticate. And now I can't use the Kindle because I can't register it. I've tried to register it through my computer with a USB connection but that isn't working either. I have had my Kindle for a few years and this has never happened before.

I had this same problem of getting the message about not in range, even though other devices connected just fine. I went to the wifi list, at the bottom and clicked on +add network and retyped the name of our network. It connected right up.

Kindle fire unable to connect to internet. I was recently in Glendale AZ. Was there for 2 weeks. Neither of my Kindles were able to connect to the internet. It actually would not even connect to my friends Wi-Fi. Her Kindle was working just fine. When I got back to DSM, both Kindles automatically connected to Wi-Fi, but still unable to get the Internet. What the heck is going on? Am I now stuck with 2 unusable Kindles!! Strange thing - I can get the internet on my Smartphone. Have ordered products etc. Can someone give me an answer??

I like it says:
Just turn off wifi and shut down then turn it on and enable wifi

Having the same 'can't find network' issues but this just started today. i have been using the new 7 Fire for almost a month but today it just refused to see the router. I had power reset that twice and tried the hold the power button down on the Kindle, nothing. I tried one of the Help numbers and I think I knew more than they did. I'll let it go until tomorrow!

I am having an issue with my KF. I wipe it first is telling me: Set Lock Screen PIN (required) two paragraphs about switching between adult and child time. also that I can remove it in my settings and hide the child profiles. I click next, it asks for me to verify my account. I give it my password, it says network error. I click Wi-Fi settings and it tells me im connected to the pubic library. I should be that where I am. if I click that connection, it asks for my amazon password. I type it, it says network error ans so the cycle begins. it is just these few things over and over and over. I cant seem to get passed it. HELP PLEASE

Reset the router. Reboot the Fire.

My NEW Kindle Fire HDX will not connect to WIFI. The connect button will not light up to allow me to connect. Any answers to this problem

Have you reset your router and rebooted the Fire?

SBC global isn't an internet service provider. If you have AT&T DSL, how many other mobile devices are on your local network?

A few days after my post my Kindle suddenly asked me to put in my password for my server which I did and now it is working. The month prior to that it never asked and I could not find the setting to even do it. Not sure what changed.

I'm having the same problem do you have SBC Global?

I used to be able to connect to my home wifi but the last month or so it will not connect. It says the signal is excellent but something is wrong with the settings. How do I get to settings and what do I change? I can connect to wifi when I am somewhere else but at home.

Well, if you don't want help, I guess my work here is done. Riddle me this, though: between three of you, no one can figure out how to drag and drop?

I have an original Kindle Fire as does my daughter and husband, no matter what we try we can no longer connect to wifi. It says signal strength is strong, but has an x by the connection. I am frustrated that I can no longer add new books to my device. It is of little use to me if I can not connect. If I had known this issue was a problem, I would never have bought the device let alone multiples. I will not make the mistake again of buying another Kindle.
