Hi,

 

Is this a new kindle?

 

Is there any error message when connecting the kindle to your Wi-Fi/wireless network name?

What is the brand and model of your wireless router?

Do you have a laptop/wireless computer that is currently connected via wireless? If so, does it have windows xp, vista, or 7?

 

Can you log in your wireless router and make sure the security mode/type is set to WPA.../WPA2... , or none/disabled, but not WEP?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Please connect the computer to the router with an Ethernet/network cable, then go to the website http://192.168.0.1/, and select/enter admin for the username and leave the password XXXXX and log in. Then look for the Set up / Wireless settings option, then select the manual... option if available, get your password/key (it is case-sensitive.)
If needed, there, also, make sure the security option is set to WPA.../WPA2... (or none/disabled, but not WEP.)

Please let me know. Thank you,

Can you go to the website http://172.27.35.1?

Are you sure both the modem and computer are connected to the router?

Thank you,
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


modem is connected to router. computer is connected to ooma phone, then to router. 172.27.35.1 says could not be resolved to location

Expert:  Viet - E-reader Tech replied 3 years ago.
From the computer that is currently connected via wireless
Please right-click on the antivirus/security/firewall program, located at the bottom right of the screen and disable it temporarily if possible,
Then please download
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview.zip
; if it does not work, try http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview-x64.zip
Then open it and run the WirelessKeyView.exe file, and select your wireless Network name.
Then to the right, there is key(hex) or key(ascii). This is your wireless password/key.

If that does not work, connect the computer straight to one of the router's Ethernet/LAN ports, then get the default gateway number again, and try that website number.

Thank you,
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


do you mean the same default number as before or get a new one

Expert:  Viet - E-reader Tech replied 3 years ago.
AFter connecting the computer straight to the router, do this again: click on Start, Run and type cmd and click OK. Then type ipconfig and press Enter, then tell me the Default gateway to see if the default gateway number is XXXXX then try that number for the website. Thank you,

well, but now how to I get on wi-fi? Sorry I am still confused. where it says connect to network and i press on that it still says authentification failed.

Expert:  Viet - E-reader Tech replied 3 years ago.
Sorry, does the kindle fire see your wireless/wi-fi network name?

At the wireless page on the computer, can you change the network / wireless / signal / mode / type / 802.11 ... to G only or N only (or 802.11g, or 802.11n, or 802.11g/n), then save, and check?

Thank you,
