CompExpert :

connect to wifi you dont need dns address

all you need is your wifi network name and password

Customer :

that doesn't work. I get an error message. I am now trying to use static IP

CompExpert :

that wont work, since your wifi router is controlling the wifi

Customer :

ok. so what can I do?

CompExpert :

who setup your wifi?

Customer :

my roommate did. I can connect to it fine on my phone and my laptop. My kindle just wont.

CompExpert :

Error in connection unable to connect. please try again

CompExpert :

because enable to look up for your dns 1 and dns 2 you need to log into your wifi router

CompExpert :

CompExpert :

because internet isp only talk to the wifi router

CompExpert :
