My Kindle is refusing to connect to my Wi-Fi network even after I enter my wireless password account Ross Jennings
Hi and Welcome. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Are you sure you are using the correct password ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the one password XXXXX tried is the network key on the back of my router in upper case


the other i tried was on my home network as the password - not sure whether I got the upper and lower case sequence right - Ed3pc3X4q8 - i only used upper case for the E and X


Which do you think is the right password XXXXX use - the network key all in upper case or the latter one ?

Ross, not sure which one is correct. But I will help you to find it out. Do you have any Windows PC connected to your wireless network ?

my icons don't agree with yours but i eventually got a password XXXXX is the same as the Ed---- one I gave you above
Does your Kindle connect to other wifi network ?

We can try to reset your router and see if it works or not. Press and hold down the reset button (or hole) on the back of the router for 5 seconds. This will soft reset your router. Then after 5 minutes, try connecting your Kindle to your network using the password XXXXX got from your PC.

have done that will try again in 5 minutes kindle is an apple product my pc is not is thi sthe problem - my kindle has been working until now ?

Ross, Kindle is not an Apple product. Kindle is a product from Amazon, not from Apple.

Any way it doesn't matter, your Kindle should work with the network. Reset the router and then connect your Kindle. If that didn't work, then please try your Kindle with other wifi network and see if it connects. That should tell us whether the problem is with the Kindle or with the network and help us to move to the right direction.
