Add a new network to your Kindle Fire

If you have your hands on the Kindle Fire tablet from Amazon and this is your first tablet you might want to know how to do some of the basic things on the Fire that you can do on your computer. The first thing you need to do before you can download anything is set up a wireless network on your tablet. Unlike some of the other Kindle eReaders, the Fire doesn't offer integrated 3G cellular connectivity for data.

That means that you need to have a wireless network set up in your home with a WiFi router available. If you don't have a wireless router and network set up in your home you need to get that taken care of first and then you can get your Kindle Fire online. I won't go into the set up of your home network and will just assume you have it in place and know your security password if your network has one.

Once you unlock the Kindle Fire it will walk you thought the set up for your WiFi network with a series of questions. You can set the network up them if you know the answers to those questions. If you don’t, you can follow these steps at any time to add a WiFi network. From the home page on the tablet you need to click the little gear icon near the battery life indicator.

That will open a gray drop down bar with the orange volume slider and a bunch of other icons. The fourth icon form the left is the WiFi network icon, which is not the icon you want for adding your new network. You want to touch the More icon. Touch this icon with your finger and it will open. That will open a screen with many other settings.

Scroll down the list until you see Wireless Network and touch that icon. This screen will show any networks you already have installed. At the bottom of that list is Add a Network, touch that icon. You will need to know your networks SSID, which is the name of the network. If you don’t know the SSID, you will need more help than this tutorial can provide. If you do know your SSID, enter it here. You also need to know your security settings. All for this info can be obtained from your router admin panel.

Select the security setting that you are using. If you are using a network security type that needs a password, a box will open to enter that password. Type the password using the onscreen keyboard. Once the password is typed hit save and then the Kindle Fire will try to connect to your network. If you entered your credentials, correctly, the tablet will connect and you are ready to surf the web or download new books.

You can buy the Kindle Fire now on Amazon for $199.
