My mom wants to buy my dad a Kindle Fire for Christmas. Currently they have a desktop computer with a modem plugged into it and use Verizon dsl for their internet. The Kindle needs wi-fi and I don't want to disrupt the way their computer is set up now.Do I simply plug the router into the modem to get the wi-fi signal?

Motorola Modem / Router For Desktop To Setup Wifi For Kindle Fire?

Dec 27, 2011

I am trying to get my parents Kindle Fire to work. They recently purchased a Motorola Modem/Router which is hooked into the desktop and works fine. I want to get their new kindle to work and can not seem to figure it out. Their operating system is Vista which I can upgrade to Windows 7 if that would make it easier. When I click on setup the WiFi part of the installation wizard cd that came with the Motorola it says there is not a network adapter. I know what that is however I do not know why I would need it when the desktop is hooked directly into modem/router and I just need the WiFi for Kindle.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Kindle Fire Wireless Logon

Apr 9, 2012

My DIR-655 has worked well for 3 months; both Ethernet and wireless. Yesterday I accidentally deleted this WiFi router from my Kindle Fire list of WiFi connections. Now, when I try to re-establish Kindle wireless logon, the router will not accept the previously used password.As a non-techno-geek, I tried to find this in the DIR-655 manual. But it is written in Greek and not oriented to the wireless user. [code]

D-Link DIR-655 :: Network Crashing After Adding Kindle Fire To The Mix?

Feb 11, 2012

I just acquired a Kindle Fire for my wife.  Joined my Dir-655 network just fine.  I have never done a firmware update (using 1.10) and have lived by the "if it ain't broke. " axiom.  Dell laptops, Mac laptops and desktops, Wii, X-box, LG Cinema TV, Roku, iPad, multiple iPhones and iPods all connect and work fine (with the occasional (once a month) reboot of the router necessary). Using cable modem (bridge mode), no historic issues.  Suddenly when the Kindle Fire is utilizing the network at the same time as one or two other devices, the network crashes, and a power down reboot is necessary.  A Google search reveals a fair number of complaints about this across router brands.

Dec 30, 2011

My problem is I bought a 3.75G Modem (E353 USB Modem) from Optus the other day, and I have an old D-Link (DI-624) router I trying to hook it up to. And the thing is I am not sure to how? have the USB device plugged into a USB port and it works so far, I have an Ethernet cable going out of my 1 of 2 LAN ports my motherboard has in to the first LAN port on the router not the WAN port, as stated by other forums.This is as far as I've gone with this. I am going to buy a new router in the future , but I'd like to figure how to make it work first. Also are there any products I can buy to make it easer

Hook Up A Motorola 2210 Modem And Linksys WRT120N Router Without Bridging?

Sep 28, 2011

I'm not that great at networking, I'm pretty much a novice but I'm trying to connect a modem and router to my computer but get around bridging the modem if possible. You see, I am working with AT&T and their dsl modem access page only works for me if the modem is unbridged. If I bridge the modem, I cannot get on the page again to unbridge it while I am trying to hook up my router. When I need them to unbridge the modem, I have to stay on hold for hours. One guy even told me that he did unbridge the modem, but since my internet persisted not to work, he told me my ethernet card went bad of a sudden on my computer. I knew this was incorrect so after a few more hours on hold, I had a lady debate with me that she was not unbridging my modem since it was my ethernet card that was bad and not the bridging. Finally, laughing to herself, she unbridged the modem for me and it worked

Here is what I have: My modem is a Motorola 2210 Style: MSTATEA My router is a Linksys WRT120N

As of right now, I just have a LAN with my modem plugged in through an ethernet cord to my PC. Is there a way of me hooking up my Linksys router to my modem and PC without bridging the modem? If so, where can I find out instructions for this?

Kindle Wifi Not Working With Westell Router

Apr 3, 2012

I have 3 Kindles (2 Kindles with keyboards and 1 kindle touch) that have wifi and they were working fine until our 2Wire router died and we got a new Westell DSL Wireless Gateway from ATT (model: B90-755025-15). All of our other wireless devices are working fine (Ipods, laptop, Ipad) with the new wireless router, but the Kindles will now not connect to our wifi network. I type in the same network key that I did for the other devices but it doesn't work. Amazon said all sofware was up to date on the kindles and it is a problem with the settings on the router because they were working before we got the router. AT&T won't work for me because they say the other devices are working so it must be a problem with the Kindles. Is there a setting I can change on the router or does the Westell router just not work with the Kindles?

How To Set Up Kindle To Modem

I've heard that you can set up your kindles and other things with the modem so that you don't always have to log in with your name and password.Someone said something about a mac number and I went to wireless setup in my modem and mac authentication > enable > allow device list > manually entered the device number. However, I still have to log in with my name and password

D-link Dir-615 :: Wifi Stopped Working For Kindle

Dec 24, 2011

I originally bought the 615 router because my Net Talk telephone required it.  The first Wi-Fi device I used is my Kindle Touch.  I have been able to use the Wi-Fi several times since I received the Kindle, but there have now been two failures to connect.  The first time I just unplugged the router power and connections, restarted the modem, and rebooted my computer.  The Wi-Fi then worked.  Now I am experiencing a failure to connect again.  

I have noticed that when I restart my computer I have to connect to the internet directly by pulling the cable from the router and putting it from the modem to the computer.  This seems to teach the router what it is supposed to do, because when I reconnect the modem to the router the internet starts to work immediately.I have tried changing the password to wireless internet, but my Kindle still will no longer connect.  The router is about two years old. [code]No go to the devices and check to see if you see the new SSID name you gave in the router. I should be listed there. Select it and it should ask you for a password, enter the password you gave in the router.  The only problem is that my modem does not exactly say "mixed G and N".
