Cannot connect Kindle to WiFi ?

Don't forget to share

Over the last couple of days I have heard of two friends that have the new Kindle without 3G that won’t connect to their WiFi at home, but strangely do connect with other WiFi’s.  One of these people is very tech savy and has never had a problem before with any wireless devices.

We’ve been searching the internet to find a fix for the problem but as yet have found nothing that works. What we have found is that there are a lot of people having the same problem, and yet some have no problem at all.
I wonder exactly how many people cannot connect the internet via Wifi, its certainly made me think twice about getting a Kindle from Amazon.

There doesn’t appear to be a pattern here either – I.E. it doesn’t seem to be a certain type of router.

I’m hoping its just something simple that we are overlooking and that maybe you can assist.

Please, if you had the same problem and found a solution for this can you put it here, so that it will help my friends and maybe other people that need help.

Update – One of my friends – gave up trying to connect the Kindle to the BT Business hub –  with the original 2Wire firmware on – and as it happens he changed his supplier and is now on SKY – It didn’t work on the auto settings but he changed the channel to number 11 and it now works.  Thought this might help someone.

Thanks  🙂
