This review is from: Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi (Previous Generation - 5th) (Electronics)
I am a bit of a techy nerd. I have used computers since the early 80s... Sinclair ZX81, then a Spectrum followed by an Atari 1040ST, various PCs and now Apple Macs. I had one of the very first Compuserve email addresses in the UK. I "designed" my first web site in about 1992/93 even though very few people would have seen it. I designed my own website for my photography business and can get my two computers to "talk" to each other via the wi-fi network. I know how to set up LANs etc.
In spite of being just a few feet away from my wi-fi hub, two successive Kindles have been unable to find a connection. My wi-fi network does not feature on the extensive list of available networks. My iMac can find my network, as can my Mac Book Pro. So can my iPhone 3S, my Blackberry 9790, my daughter's Mac Book Air and her iPhone 5, my friend's HTC desire, a client's Samsung Galaxy and an old PC laptop I haven't used for years which I booted up in order to test my wi-fi.
I spent almost an hour last week talking to one person on the Kindle help desk. Switch this on and off. Re-boot that. OK let's try this... all to no avail. A replacement Kindle was sent. I have just gone through the whole sorry process again.
I am now returning the Kindle and asking for a refund. I shall stick to good old fashioned paper books for now. They work straight from the shop!!!
