Only my new Kindle Fire connects to wifi, 7th Gen I think. My older (2013/4th Gen ??) wont connect at all. It was working fine yesterday morning, I downloaded some books and read the newspaper, etc. The error msg I get is "Router rejects your connection request" Ive never seen that kind of error msg.

Just got a Kindle Fire 7" not HD, and it won't connect to the internet. It keeps trying, showing "authenticating," but then it quits and starts trying again. I have checked the settings and restarted, as suggested, but no luck. :(

Sometimes you need to open up the browser on your device and accept terms for using a library wifi connection.

Kindle Customer,
What devices DO work with your home satellite internet?

Have you retried the restore factory defaults? Exactly what happens after you do?

They're out of warranty by almost three times, the length of which warranty was known when you bought them, at which time you had an opportunity to extend the coverage and chose not to. Since then, you could have asked for help here or from your provider. You could have taken one or both somewhere else to see if they connect to another network. You could have attempted to rule out a number of other things which you did not. Too bad.

I have 2 Kindle Fire 5th Gens that I purchased in October of 2015 - both were working great until the last update, them Whammo! Can't connect to the network no matter what I do. Wi-Fi signal excellent but still can't get the app store to load without errors, can't get Silk to load without errors. After 2 VERY lengthy conversations with support in the Philippines they still do not work. My calls were escalated and still do not work. I tried everything all the way down to factory resetting both tablets - you guessed it, still don't work. Asked for money back - no joy - asked the units be replaced - again no joy. Only had these things 8 months and Amazon won't stand behind them. I was told they were out of warranty (90 days, seriously? I've only had them 8 months!) I have been a Prime member for YEARS and most everything that I buy on the internet is through Amazon but now I am seriously rethinking that decision.

This forum has nothing to do with Amazon, it is for Kindle users to communicate with each other.

Does Amazon read and pay attention to these discussions or do they put this site up just to let kindle owners vent? I've gone through 5 Kindles; 2 replacements, 2 I had to pay half price (before the price went down to $49) and the last one I paid $49. This was all through the kindle help techs. It still does not connect to the internet. We have replaced our router and that did not help. I can go to a local restaurant and use their wifi and it works. We have satellite internet. We called them and they couldn't find anything wrong at their end. So when we go out to dinner I take the Kindle with me to download a new book. This is really poor, poor, poor customer service and relations. I would quit Kindle altogether but I have over 250 books on it. This is just the short version of my dealings with Amazon Kindle help. I could write a book on all the "hoops I've jumped through" to be able to use my Kindle. There, I've vented. "Hello out there are you listening Amazon ?"

I can not connect no matter what I do. Amazon needs to create up to date products. The kindle is obviously inferior to other tech companies. Gosh darn it.

A network connection is requaired to complete this task. No Wi-Fi. Please help me connect.
