If the Kindle still doesn't detect the WiFi at all, try one more reboot. This time make it the wireless router. Don't reset the router using any reset button; this will lose all the router settings. Simply unplug the router for 30 seconds and plug it back in. See if the Kindle can detect it once it is back on. If it still doesn't, look on the back of the Kindle. You should see a model starting with D0. Let me know what that model is. Thanks!
Still no luck.
The model number is DO1200 .
Alright, so lets see where we are. You have the Kindle Touch. When you try to connect to wireless, it doesn't show your wireless router at all. This router works for other devices in the home, such as laptops. Resetting the Kindle and router doesn't help. Is all this correct?Is this a new Kindle?Has it ever been connected to any WiFi source?
Correct. All other devices work fine. My cell phone and my computer and printer work on the WiFi.
I have had the Kindle for about three months.
I have downloaded ebooks in the past without a problem.
There are a number of things we can try, first lets try to setup the connection manually.
If your Kindle Touch fails to connect to the Wi-Fi network, it will display an Unable to Connect message. You can manually enter all the network information for the Wi-Fi network by choosing Set Up when you see the Unable to Connect message.Once again, let me know if this doesn't work.
I tried it twice.
We're gonna get there one way or another. Sometimes telling the Kindle to forget a network will help it pick up on that network again. Try these steps.
I am not sure what a tick symbol is but, not matter the kindle does not detect ANY WiFi signals.
There are other WiFi signals in the area but my Kindle detects nothing.
It now connects to the WiFi.
Thank you. Now, how do I establish my archive list?
I told you we'd get there! Great!
Register with the same amazon.com email address and password ***** last time, and you should see archived items on the home screen. You can also go to Menu > Sync after registration and it should pull your books in.
I hit sync and went to a page that did not show me how to retrieve my books.
I was not able to find the books that I had previously purchased on the Amazon site. But, that is no big deal.
I want to thank you for helping me get my Kindle up and running.
I do appreciate it.
