why can't i connect my kindle to the internet?

I just got a kindle for my birthday and I couldn't connect it to the Wi-Fi. I can use the Wi-Fi with my computer, I-Pad and all the other things but I couldn't connect my kindle to Wi-Fi. I've tried everything. I know my Wi-Fi's password and I've tried advanced and it didn't work. I really don't want to do it manually. I've tried the suggestions on this website and others but none of them work. Help plz?

    Not sure what you mean by that. The only manual part involved is entering the wireless key and tapping 'OK'.
    That's all I had to do on my wife's Kindle. Some suggestions:

    1) Take your Kindle nearer to the router and try again.
    2) Change the router's wireless channel from 'Auto' to 'Manual", then set it to channel 10, 11 or 12.
    3) Temporarily disable wireless encryption so no password is required, does it connect now?
  2. Turn on Kindle
    Go to settings
    turn on antenna ie, where it says airplane mode it should be OFF. Airplane mode means no connection so it has to be off
    wifi networks. You should now see your network listed, join it and add key/passphrase as needed.
    You should now see a little bar graph indicator up top showing signal strength.
  3. For my "Kindle 3"(B00A) I had to modify the access point settings
    1. change channel from 'Auto' to 'Manual'
    2. turn off 802.11n support

    Then it worked like a charm.
