On other models From the Home screen, press the Menu button.Select Settings, and then select view next to Wi-Fi Settings.In the list of detected networks, choose a network to connect to it.If Wi-Fi is not turned on, you will get a message asking if it should be turned on. Tap OK.Or, if the Kindle Paperwhite is in Airplane mode (that is, Wi-Fi is not turned on), you'll see a message asking if you want to turn off Airplane mode.Select the network to which you want to connect.If the network you want to connect to has a lock icon next to its name, you need to enter a password.
