Connect to Wi-Fi

Connect to a Wi-Fi network to buy and download content, sync to receive items, or sync to the furthest page read.

How to connect any Kindle e-reader, 3rd generation or newer. See Which Kindle E-reader Do I Have? if you're not sure which Kindle e-reader model you're using.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. From the Home screen, select Menu, and then select Settings.
  2. Depending on your device, select Wireless, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth (newer generation devices); Wi-Fi Networks, or View next to Wi-Fi Settings (earlier generation devices).
    • If your Wi-Fi network and router support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), your Kindle will detect it. From the Wi-Fi Password Required screen, tap WPS, and then press the WPS association button on your router to connect.
    • If your network doesn't support WPS, enter the Wi-Fi network password. If you don't know this password, contact the person who set up the Wi-Fi network.
    • If you don't see your network in the list, go to Add a Wi-Fi Network Manually.
  3. Select your Wi-Fi network from the list and enter the password, if it's a password-protected network. If you don't know the password, contact the network administrator or person who set up the network.

After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the last network used.

Note: If your Kindle includes 3G/4G coverage, 3G/4G coverage is automatically turned off when you connect to a Wi-Fi network.
