Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Is it the WiFi password, or passphrase, that allows you to connect the Kindle to WiFi and internet, that you are having trouble with?

And, do you have any other devices about, that are connected to and working off of, this same WiFi?

OK, is the computer an Apple or a Windows PC?

i think it is 7 but am not sure
Electronics Technician: Russell H., Technician replied 10 months ago

OK. If it has a big round 'orb' at the lower left of the screen, it's either Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Try this on your Windows 7 (?) computer:

right click on the WiFi icon at lower right, it looks like parallel waves from an antenna, usually.

Choose the Open Network And Sharing Center.

Then, click on Change Adapter Settings at left.

Then, right-click on the WiFi icon there, and choose STATUS.

Then, click on Wireless Properties.

Click on the Security tab.

Click on the checkbox for 'Show Characters'... and behold, your WiFi password ***** be revealed there.

Use that to enter the same password ***** your Kindle. It should work, if you get the characters entered exactly right, UPPER CASE like that as distinguished from lower-case letters.

Let me know if that works for you.
