Hi Kathleen. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

When you enter your new wireless password ***** tap connect,

what error message are you receiving?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I get saved, then authentication problem appears in red.
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

Hold you finger down on your wireless network name on the Kindle and when the menu appears

tell the Kindle to "Forget" the network.

Then, leave this page up on your screen. Remove the power cable from your router for

60 seconds and plug it back in and the router will restart (this page will start working again when the router comes up)

On your Kindle, slide and hold the power button down for 30 seconds and release.

After the Kindle reboots try to connect it again.

Byron, are you still there ?
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

Yes, I am.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Are you making any progress in connecting?
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

I'm not trying to connect to you. I posted some instructions above. Have you done those things to try

and get the Kindle connected?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No, I clicked on SECURELY CONNECT BUTTON for $39 to have you troubleshoot for me.
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

That hasn't shown up on my screen.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Should I press the button again?
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

Not yet. Is your laptop connected wirelessly?

Or is it connected to the router with a cable?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It is connected wirelessly.
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

Try the instructions I posted above first as I can't do those things even if I'm connected to you.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Okay, Byron. I will try what you suggested. Have to go now..have a handicapped husband who needs me now. I'll try it and if no success, will call Verizon for help. Thank you so much for your efforts.
Expert:  Byron replied 6 months ago.

Let me know how it goes. I can connect later if needed.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks again!
