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.

Thank you so much! This was driving me crazy and can't figure out why I lost the ability to connect to the internet. Going through Kindle's Help Section was of no help. Your tip did the trick!

Hi Cyndy,
I had a small problem this afternoon with my KINDLE fire. sent off a HELP email and within 15 minutes I had a reply which sorted my problem out.

Try using your HELP from your KINDLE and I'm pretty sure they will have a simple fast reply.

Personally my KINDLE is the very best thing I have ever bought, I live in southern Italy, I'm a UK ex pat, I can now watch all my favourite UK TV stations on my KINDLE, read books, send and receive emails, surf the net from bed, amazing tool.

Good luck.
Gerry, S Italy
