I have read various posts on this site and also visited Amazon, but I cannot find the step-by-step directions I need to get my Kindle Touch to connect to AirPort. (We seem to have AirPort Extreme 4th generation.) I know next to nothing about computers and nothing at all about AirPort, so the instructions I have found are not understandable. The Kindle tells me that our house's wifi is available and it also tells me if I have entered the wrong password. So, the Kindle Touch knows the network is there and I know that it is accepting the proper password. The house's wifi is working perfectly with our laptop.
One post I read referred to "internet sharing." That is turned off. I tried turning it on, but it seemed to require ethernet or firewire (and I have no idea what those are). There were also references to WEP and WPA2 and other things that I have no knowledge about.
We stopped at the Vermont Welcome Center, and I was briefly able to connect using their wifi. However, I then put the Kindle in my coat pocket so it could download books while I wandered, but somehow a button must have gotten pressed because when I looked at it a few minutes later, there was an ad on the screen, the books had stopped downloading, and the connection was lost. The Kindle would not reconnect to the wifi network.
I have tried restarting the Kindle and that did not work.
If anyone can provide explicit instructions, I would appreciate it.
Also, I thought this might just be a Mac problem, but the fact that I also ran into some kind of problem at the Welcome Center makes me think that it might be a wider issue.
