Would help if anyone would answer. The video screens don't look like how my kindle starts up. Mine wants WiFi first, not registration and I can't find a "guest" network and if I did it wants a password. Sitting right next to my computer and can't connect.. Hello?

Everytime I put in my password, it says unable to connect to Wi-Fi Network. Also it says the password you entered is invalid.

What do I do?

My password is correct and I have a Linksy wireless router. I press the button in the centre of the router which then flashes - this I was told to do by another user.

I want to buy another book.

It seems that connecting wirelessly to the kindle is a common problem - I'm completely lost - I don't have a password to enter for my Belkin router and, it seems, nowhere to turn to! Anybody out there?

for 20 minutes I am watching my computer screen waiting for the program to load, nothing nhappens. Is this why I bought a kindle? Thanks Bozos

Can't hook to wi-fi not suprised, this thing nis junk.

So did anyone help all these people? I didnt realize I was going to have go somewhere else with the Kindle in order to connect it, since all the advertising says it has built-in wifi. Obviously not, since it wont connect at my home. I have broadband at home. Why cant it connect to that thru the USB cord?

This is not only a help it "was" mandatory"! Ordered book of instruction & got message just set up with Wifi...had not a clue how to start. This is a beginning. The Password to the wifi is still a mystery, but hopefully will figure out. Laurie

This does not help when you do not have a wi-fi connection.
I bought a kindle a couple months ago with wi-fi and 3g and the 1st edition I bought my child does not have the 3g and I am so not satisfied. I am thinking of returning the kindle and going with another brand.

Where is the space key on the keyboard. I can't type in a title without it. Also, why no search by author?

I found the space key on the keyboard. Go to the bottom line of keyboard and go to the right of the @ sign. That is the spacer.

I just purchased Kindle and am trying to figure out how to get connected to Wi-Fi. The Kindle was no help with this. However, I got an e-mail that shows video which is informative. My Kindle does not show any networks. It shows you have to put in name of network and password.

I am going to see about router and also go to our library since they have Wi-Fi. I think you need to take time and have patience to learn how to proceed.

Bea Weiner says:
silliest product I've ever had. There is absolutely no way to connect because the networks shown on the kindle screen do not match anything I've ever heard of. Of course, written instructions would be so much simpler to use. How do I get instructions in writing?
It's pretty pointless to have a product that I can't use.

My kindle does not look like anything on the screen. All that it has is one button on the side, bottom of device. Is it possible that this device belonged to another person before it was given to me, meaning that someone else tried to set it up and had the same problems I'm having?

i am so aggravated with this thing, it was supposed to be the best thing ever. my first one would not connect with "any" wifi, am receiving a new one because cs stated i went thru all the steps so it must be defective. i got the new one in the mail today, if i have "any" trouble with it, it will also go back and i am done with amazon. where is the instruction manual you say comes with it. i got a usb cord and that was it. a replacement does not qualify as good cs. ridiculous, glad i am not the only one that has a problem with this thing. thought it was me until i read all these comments.

Totally agree reference plants 369's comments, concerning the space key location.Reference what you state concerning network name and password please read below my experience (2 days ago)
I just received my kindle, and hunted the world /Internet reference is there such a thing as a correct or incorrect wifi router considering I have virgin media broadband (cable), and yes it seems I must buy the correct router that is cable compatible.
The mature sales guy (50years old +) at Tescos put me right not just to sell me anything, he explained what I need to do to install it(and he was correct) and it would be straight forward. A couple of suitable/basic routers were available, considering price I bought (£42) a BELKIN N300 wifi router (it actually says on a red label " for BT infinity and cable connections on the box.
Installing it was "just follow the set up disc instructions including the router Network name(SSID) and network wifi password, this is on the card supplied with the router.
Everything was fine and setting up the kindle to wifi connection was "just follow the steps" on the kindle wifi set page, except to complete it , it asks for credit card details to set up the amazon account (which makes sense, considering purchasing books etc), once that was inputted, all hell broke loose (automatically) and the wifi connected, for interest my wifi network( found in settings/ wifi network (select view) is in fact named belkin with some password characters displayed
I hope info this helps

Dear Bea Weiner, I did the following successfully to get the user guide

Enter , into google the words, kindle documentation,then search, then select a web site that states kindle documentation (this will be an amazon website),

Then you should see a picture of your kindle model (amongst others), select the blue font user guide PDF (its a PDF file) once opened save to your computer.If you dont see a picture or pictures ofdifferent kindle models, and no blue font user guide PDF, then try another website from the previous website list (previous page).

I did this before I received my kindle(revision) to try and appear intelligent to my wife,I failed miserably, no change there then. Happy new year to you, and good luck with the kindle

Dear Bea, I have already replied to your other post, May I suggest then that you go to the website I suggested in my previous post , then maybe you can view the displayed pictures of the the kindle models then match it up with the one you have, then download the user guide PDF file for it. Good luck
