We just got a new Kindle Fire, but cannot get connected to Sprint MiFi? It will not accept our Amazon password?

I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you trying to put in your Amazon password to connect to MiFi?

Does your MiFi have a password (or network key of some sort) associated with it? That would be what's blocking you from connecting.

You would connect with your MiFi password.

You don't use your Amazon password to connect to the Mifi you use the password given to you or the one you selected when you setup the MiFi to connect to it.

Use the password found on the bottom of the MiFi unit. It should then connect. I have a MiFi device and that's what I had to do to get it to work.

We are trying to down load from Amazon, but the only wireless we have is Sprint MiFi. Amazon keeps asking for our password and when we put it in it keeps saying that it is an invalid password. However, today I bought something from Amazon and there was no problem with the password. We know that we were not putting it in wrong as we tried at least a dozen times being very careful that there was no problem.

When you bought something from Amazon, did it ask for your password? Did you make the purchase from your Kindle Fire?

Yes it asked for the password. No mwe did not order from the Kindle.

So, when you try to order from the Fire, and it asks for your Amazon password, are you typing the password in exactly the same each time?

Yes, we are typing it in exactly the same each time. Our problem is we cannot even get as far as ordering as it keeps asking for our password and then says that it is invalid. We order off of our lap top and the password works. We have not even been able to get a book as yet as it will not let us get that far! Today it just keeps saying that "it is getting our account information. This may take a minute." After several minutes the fire just turns off. We need help! So far all we get is are you typing in the password the same way. Today we cannot even get as far as needing our password.

S. Bucher,

It appears that you may be confusing the password (typically a set of numbers) required by your router (your Sprint Mifi) with the Amazon password required to access your Amazon account. Are you able to access the internet on your KF? If so, you don't have a problem with your Spint Mifi and your post belongs on another thread.

If you are able to access the internet via your Sprint portable router but you're running into problems purchasing from the Amazon website, I suspect you may be running into problems due to the keyboard entering an uppercase letter at the start of your password. There are several ways to avoid this problem but the simplest approach may be to change the password on your Amazon account. Put in a password that begins with an uppercase letter.

Okay, Thank you, we will try changing the password.
