No, I've tried your suggestion 3 times and I'm still getting 'Unable to connect to Wi-Fi Network'. Can you suggest any other solution? Kay.
Yes! It's directing me to the Browser but it still says 'unable to connect', even before it allows me to type in my password.
Sometimes it suggests that I set up the Wi-Fi network manually and then asks me for info I don't know, Connection Type, IP address, Subnet Mask, Router, DNS and Security Type! I don't have the foggiest idea what all this stuff means!
The Kindle Fire, meanwhile, is now connected to the same Wi-Fi network without a problem! I just inserted the password ***** Bingo!
No, I'm still getting 'unable to connect'! The Wi-Fi network I use allows only one hour's free connection in every 24 hours and it may be that I've used up that hour with the connection to the Kindle Fire, so I'll wait until tomorrow and try again.
I've had this Kindle for a couple of years and I always carry it around with me. I've never dropped it or knowingly damaged it, but I suppose it's possible that it's been damaged somehow.
I'm going offline now but I'll get back to you tomorrow with an update. Fingers crossed! Thanks for your help. Kay.
Hi Richard,Sorry I didn't get back to you until now. I was working!
I note what you say about the internal Wi-Fi card but here's a strange thing! I was at a friend's house and she has Wi-Fi. She gave me her password, and lo and behold - my Kindle connected to it! So it looks as though there isn't a problem with the Kindle, it's something about my own house which inhibits wireless connection from local 'hot spots'.
What do you think? Is it possible that some external factor such as heavy traffic or geographical situation could affect connectivity? Kay.
My Kindle is connecting to a Wi-Fi network now. I bought a router modem, set it up and everything is fine. I've re-downloaded all the items from the archive. There's nothing wrong with the Kindle after all!
Thanks for your suggestions, though.
