Hi,
My name is***** will assist you.

This sounds like you may be entering the wrong wifi password. Or you may be entering the password ***** We will need to make sure that you have the correct password ***** What is the brand/model of your router/modem and the name of your Internet provider also please?

Okay. Thank you. Follow these steps please. press and hold the power button for 20 seconds and then release. After the device has completely turned off, press the power button to restart your Kindle>
To connect to Wi-Fi follow these steps:
Tap the Quick Settings icon
Select Wi-Fi.
Ensure Wireless Networking switch is in the on position.
Your home network should appear in the list.
Tap the name of your network. A lock symbol will appear next to your network if it requires a password.
Enter the characters of the password ***** the onscreen keyboard.
You can find your wireless password (sometimes called a network key) on the back or underside of all Sky routers and on the Connect card or Keep me handy card that came in the Sky router packaging
Make sure you always enter your password ***** capital letters. The password ***** contain any numbers. If you’re asked for a PIN then enter this instead of the password.
