In the list of detected networks, tell me if your wireless network is listed please

There is no indication of WIFI network. There used to be a section for it

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Yes, you need to follow the steps to get there.

I will repeat them

From the Home screen, press the Menu button.
Select Settings, and then select Wi-Fi Networks.

If you have problems with the steps, tell me on exactly which step

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have told you that there is no WIFI network item showing ie No section showing the heading WIFI network

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Ok, remember, I need to clarify here, not assume, when the response is not clear, so please be patient and aware of this as I will not guess my way to solving your problem.

You will need to reset the Kindle to rule out the firmware as the issue.

This will remove all content and return the Kindle to new, but you cannot avoid this.

Go to Settings in the Top right, then select Settings, from the menu, then Reset device.

Let it reset, then set up the Kindle again like when you first recieved it.
