When I try to use the guest access, it asks for a password. It says that the guess access password can be found using Cisco Connect. How do I access that?

Edit: This one's for Thurston: That sounds like you need to contact whomever owns the signal you're trying to ride. How do you get on the internet at home?

Edit: This one's for Carlson: You need your ROUTER password; this has nothing to do with the Kindle or Amazon. When you set it up in your house, you would have had the option to set a password.

Who set it up? What kind of router is it? Do you have other devices connected to wi-fi in your home?

Are you at home trying to connect to *your* own wi-fi network?

My computer is still plugged in to the phone line. Who do I call?

Then where is this wi-fi network you're trying to connect to?

A. Thurston, First where are you-- a hotel, hospital or retail establishment that offers free wifi? or are you at home?

eta: nevermind, looks like you are at home

If you don't have wireless then the Kindle is picking up a wireless signal from a neighbor.

Which Kindle do you have? If it is a Fire you are not going to get much use out of it without wifi in your house. A wifi router can be bought for about $40. Your internet provider may be able to assist you with getting one and installing it.

If you have a non-Fire, you need to go somewhere with free wifi to register the Kindle. Then you can download books using the USB cable. McDonald's has free wifi as well as Starbucks and many other places.

Who do you call about what? You can't connect to wi-fi if you don't *have* wi-fi. Are you at home? What kind of Kindle do you have?

You need to start by getting your own wifi network instead of trying to log onto your neighbors'.
You get a ROUTER and connect it to your Internet access modem. You can go to Best Buy or some place like that, or maybe your Internet Service Provider will set one up for you.

A. Thurston says:
okay. Thanks. I will call comcast this morning.

First, do you have DSL or cable internet service that provides your internet?

If so, call your provider and see if they offer a router---this beams your internet (called wifi) to any device you may want to hook up to the internet. They MIGHT provide a router for you free of charge. If not, you'll have to purchase a router.

I have no idea what I have. Cable internet service. I have no router. I will have to arrange a time for them to come here. Thanks

Just Peachy says:
That is probably your best bet if you are not sure about routers and how they work. The other option is if you know someone who is knowledge about computers, modems and routers, have them help you.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 5:35:22 AM PST
Yeah, A. Thurston, call your cable internet provider first... see what options you have from them. Feel free to come back and let us help you later if need be.

So you're using dial-up, is that right? What kind of Kindle do you have?
