Hi there and welcome

What is the exact message you get when it fails to connect to the wifi network?

Please let me know

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Thanks

We can get the wifi password ***** the mac

To do this

Type Keychain Access into Spotlight search at the top-right menu

In the sidebar, make sure you click on Passwords, then search for the network you want the password ***** and double click on it.

Click on Show Password. Confirm your administrator username and password.

You may be prompted to enter your administrator name and password *****

The Wi-Fi password ***** appear in the text box next to Show Password.

Then use this on the Kindle.

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know the results please.

I have downloaded Team viewer but I have not been given an ID or Password ***** the program has disappeared from my screen although I didn't close it. What I have is a message inviting me to do something for unattended access - I don't think I want that, do I?

No its not, but maybe this is easier for you

Click this link, click I agree and run the file please.

Well I've done that and nothing is happening. Maybe I don't understand the language. I've read the four steps and clicked 'download the file again'.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Howq do I do that when there are no instructions on the screen? I've clicked the download button twice but nothing happens.
