    My network shows up in the Wi-Fi Networks but when I put in my password it won't connect.

    I get an error message.

    Any suggestions?

    I know some devices have problems connecting to Ad-Hoc networks. Could this be going on? I'll try with mine and see if I can connect.

    Okay, I'm able to connect my Kindle Keyboard via open wifi to my evo running MikG 3.0 fine.

    I'm now looking through the Kindle docs to see if it mentions any conflicts with wpa2, as I'm guessing that's what you're using.

    Kindle does not connect to enterprise or ad-hoc networks, and only uses 802.11b&g [Kindle User's Guide, 2nd Ed.]

    So, I'd check your phone and switch to TKIP. I'm pretty sure that would fix your issue (or open and just use the built in "Manage Users" feature to kill connections you don't allow)

    My dad had some trouble setting up the wifi on his Kindle. Every time we chose his wifi network from the list of networks in range and entered the password, it would give some error. We tried the manual setup - typing in the SSID and password - and it worked fine, so maybe that will work for you.

    Thank you everyone. I was able to connect using my son's connection with me on wifi.

    Where do I find my SSID number?

    SSID = Service Set Identifier. It's the wireless network 'name'. It'll be in the wifi hotspot app that you are using...
