How do I set up the Wi-Fi connection on my Kindle?
Kindle automatically detects nearby Wi-Fi networks and hotspots that broadcast their network name. When you visit a place that offers Wi-Fi access, such as your school, home, or the Wi-Fi hotspot at your favourite cafe, you can join a Wi-Fi network. At a hotel or cafe that requires a password, simply enter the password and connect to the network.
