Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 6" Display, White - 2nd Generation

My internet at home is set up as a hotspot (free with my rent). I am unable to connect to wifi and there is not a choice for "wifi networks" in my settings. Is there a way to set up a 2nd generation kindle to hotspot wifi?

It doesn't have wifi, only 3G.

That Kindle can only connect via 3G, not wi-fi.

I believe, and someone will come correct me if I am wrong, that your model is 3G only. It does not have wi fi capability.

Here's the help page for wireless on the Kindle 2nd Gen.

The 1st and 2nd generations Kindles do not have Wifi capabilities. They started adding Wifi with the 3rd generation now the Kindle Keyboard.
