Samsung galaxy S6 But also netgear will not work on my Kindle was fine till Fri Now will not allow me to acess anything online
Expert:  Kevin T replied 7 months ago.

So your netgear router will not give your phone or your kindle internet? Does it give any other device internet?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No just those two I didn''t change any settings
Expert:  Kevin T replied 7 months ago.

Can you disconnect from the net gear network on your phone and then re-connect it. This will pull a fresh copy of the correct internet settings.

Unlikely it will fully resolve your issue but it's a start.
