Click on the 'gear' on the top right of the screen, click on Wi-Fi, and then click on 'off'.

Tap the settings icon at the top right of the home page, then tap "Wi-Fi" and select "off."

I just tried to help a library patron turn off their wireless and it would not highlight "off" to turn off. I disconnected from the network and went back into tools and the toggle did not appear again to choose "off". We spent 15 minutes trying to get it off and did not succeed. How could one do it in a hurry on an airplane?

I have a Kindle Fire HD Tablet, and I found this problem a bit obscure at first. The settings menu is not accessed through a gear symbol, but by sweeping down from the very top of the display on the Home window. The dark bar with the device ID, time, and battery icon is where to start the sweep. The settings icons appear at the top of the page with the underlying window shadowed. Touch the wireless icon to get the wireless settings menu. It is useful to explore the "More" icon as well. Hope this helps.

Since you are replying to a post from 2011, it most certainly does not help.

Jan the post you are replying to is from 2011 back then there was just the first generation Fire which has the gear symbol.

The Fire HD is 2nd generation and some changes were made, 2nd generation you swipe down from the top to access the settings.

Nice of you to want to help, but ... yeah. Not all Fires are 2nd gen HDs.

erma, you need to tell us what device you're asking about if you want help. If it's a Kindle, which specific model? Basically you turn on Airplane Mode, how you do that depends on what device you're using.
