Century Link changed my...

Century Link changed my modem, and my MAC address is not different from the on I have on my Kindle Fire. It will not connect with my computer any more. I think I may need to hange my MAC address on the Kindle so that it is the same on my computer modem, but I don't know how. Can you help me?

Technician's Assistant: What version of iTunes are you using to sync your Mac?

I don't know what iTunes are .. .

Technician's Assistant: When did you last reboot?

How do I reboot?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't know what I need to know. I just need help! :-)

Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

There is absolutely no way to "Change the MAC address on the Kindle".

May I ask for the brand and model name of your wireless router or your wireless modem?

Once I have the above requested information, I will be able to give you the correct answer.

I look forward to your response,
Jason
