Connect to Wi-Fi

Connect to a Wi-Fi network to buy and download content, download content from the Cloud, sync to receive items or sync to the furthest page read.

  1. From the Home screen, press the Menu button.
  2. Select Settings, and then select Wi-Fi Networks.
  3. In the list of detected networks, select a network to connect to it.

    If your Wi-Fi network and router support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), your Kindle will detect it.

    If you don't see your network in the list, you need to add the network manually.

  4. If the network is protected by a password or WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), enter the password.
    • Password—Enter the password, and then select Connect.

      If you don't know the Wi-Fi network password, contact the person who set up the Wi-Fi network.

    • WPS—Tap WPS.

After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the last network used.
