Randy, thank you but that is what I have been doing, I think, but your instructions were for a much more modern kindle than mine which is very old and one doesn't tap things, one presses buttons and theyare called menu and home and settings. I think what I did is what you told me and suddenly yesterday evening the wifi signal came on, so I tried to download something, but it turned off before I could finish it. Later it came on again when I was in the room immediately above the wifi. Again it went off before I could use it. It is very frustrating. Any other ideas? I've turned off the whole kindle several times, but that doesn't do it. I'm going away for xmas later this morning but will be back on boxing day.. Saltoun
I'm back home again!
Yes, I tried holding the on/off switch for 40 seconds and then restarting it. but it was no good. How would I check the wi-fi? It seems to have plenty of green lights on. Saltoun
Sorry for my ignorance, but what is the router? Saltoun
The model no. is D00901 as far as I can see. It's very difficult to read.
The wi-fi is BTHomeSpot-R6P
When the Kindle offers me a choice of 3 wifi networks I choose that one. It then asks me for the password ***** while I am entering it, the kindle changes my choice to BTbusiness Hub and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. Any suggestions? Saltoun
Do you know how to check / confirm your Wi-Fi / wireless password?
Do you also have a windows or mac computer?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
The wi-fi password ***** ***** a plastic card tucked into the back of the wi-fi.
My computer is Windows XP Saltoun
Yes, but my wi-fi didn't come with my computer. I had one produced by BT when I got Broadband, but it was not much use, so my computer expert got me the present one which worked very well for quite a long time and then suddenly started to play up. The password ***** a7ad7db76e Saltoun
Thank you. Please click on the website below:
, then allow the Elsinore.ScreenConnect program to download/run/open when prompted.Note: If it does not connect within 5 minutes, then please reply at the box below and let me know. Thank you
I hope the info below is what you need. Saltoun
Yes my kindle is turned on. Yes it asks for my password ***** when I enter it it changes to BTBusinessHub-560 which I think is what I had before I changed to BTHomeSpot-R6P I suppose my internet provider is BT, but I don't know how to contact them and God help anyone who tries to contact BT anyway, in my experience. Since writing the above my Kindle has started saying "forget" after BTHomeSpot-R6PI . I then entered the name of the wi-fi and the password ***** and Lo and Behold! I had a connection which has lasted long enough for me to order 2 books. The only prob lem is that they have not appeared on my home page! Saltoun
So far no problem yet to-day, but I'll try to save or print your instructions in case of need. Thank you for your patience! Saltoun
