Step 1:Point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Settings.
Step 2:Click the wireless network icon .
Step 3:Right click on a wireless network name, and then choose View connection properties.
Step 4:Select Show characters to see the wireless network password.
Another way is, press Windows and R keys and this will bring Run. Type ncpa.cpl and press enter. You will see the WiFi network adapter. Right click on it and select Status. From the resulting window, click Wireless Properties and click "Show Password" to see the password.
Use that password ***** connect your Kindle to it.
