Connect to Wi-Fi

Connect to a Wi-Fi network to buy and download, stream or download from the Cloud, sync to receive items, or sync to the furthest page read. Help for Kindle Fire (2nd Generation), Kindle Fire HD 7" (2nd Generation), and Kindle Fire HD 8.9" (2nd Generation).

Your Kindle Fire automatically detects nearby Wi-Fi networks and wireless hotspots that broadcast their network name. Some networks are open for everyone to join, while others require a password to connect. You can connect your Kindle Fire to your home Wi-Fi network, public Wi-Fi networks, and some enterprise private networks.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show Quick Settings, and then tap Wireless.
  2. Verify that Aeroplane Mode is Off.
  3. Next to Wi-Fi, tap On.
  4. Tap a network to connect to it. If you see a lock image of lock icon 
				icon, a network password is required. Enter the Wi-Fi network password, and then tap Connect.

    Note: If you don't know the password, check with the person who set up the network. This password is not your Amazon account password.

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