Access the router via a computer and enter the user setup screens -- in wireless settings check that wireless mode is compatible with Kindle's mode. Also check that Access List is disabled.

I'm not familiar with Kindle but you've tried the logical things, I assume including turning off wireless security altogether ?

Sounds like a call to Amazon to see if they have any thoughts.

hi have got this problem fixed after 4 days of net searches and late nights

first you need to install the latest up date
next you need to rename your wireless network to a name of 10 or less letters and spaces
next either no password or a password of 8 letters

all this got my kindle wireless working with aol broadband and a netgear adsl2+ modem router dg834g va also fully updated

dont you just love tech

Those are truly ridiculous regulations. O.O

So much easier than buying a paperback, opening the page and reading it.
