Hi there, I am Cris and will be glad to assist you.

When setting up a Kindle the prompts walk you through doing so. The two most important things are connecting to WiFi which gives you internet access on the Kindle. Without Internet access you won't be able to purchase books or download any apps.

Once connected to WiFi next you have to register the device to your Amazon account or if you do not have one you can create one.

Do you know your WiFi password? Or have you tried connecting the device to WiFi?
