Thank you. Please press and hold the Power on / off button on your Kindle for about 40 seconds, then turn it back on. Then please confirm your Wi-Fi wireless password ***** another method below:

  1. On your Windows laptop computer, open Control Panel.
    ; (If needed, press at the same time the two keys Windows logo and R on the computer's keyboard, then type control then click OK, then the Control Panel window should open.)
  2. Open Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Then click on your wireless network name on the right of the item Connections. (Note your exact Wi-Fi wireless network name.)
