Before going to the main topic, we should know what Kindle is. Kindle is an android ebook reader device that is specially designed by amazon. This type of device’s main purpose is to enable the users to download and read the electronic versions of different newspapers, magazines, and, most especially, ebooks. You can also search for different types of websites, blogs, and much more by using this Kindle reader device.
During any journey or travel, we have to stay in a hotel, and there we have a problem with how to connect your Kindle device to the hotel wi-fi. So if you are having trouble connecting with Kindle to the hotel’s wi-fi or any other public network such as at an airport or any restaurant, you can solve this problem very easily.
But sometimes things get so messed up that simple things don’t work. In this article, I will tell you a step by step process of connecting Kindle to a hotel wi-fi? I will also tell you about troubleshooting some problems which you may encounter.
The biggest mistake
One of the biggest mistakes while connecting the Kindle to wi-fi is that we have to turn off airplane mode for some reason. When the airplane mode is not off, you are still trying to connect to a public wi-fi network; then, ultimately, it will not work. So the first thing you have to keep in mind is making sure the airplane mode is off while connecting the Kindle to wi-fi.
Step by Step Process of getting a connection to Wi-Fi
First of all, open your kindle fire and then go to the home screen. You can go to the settings manually, turn on the wi-fi or swipe down to get the quick settings, and tap wi-fi.
After swiping down, you will get the wi-fi option. Just tap the wi-fi option and then turn it on. Here your kindle device will show all the public wi-fi networks available around you.
The wi-fi network, which shows the strongest signal, is the one you want to connect, especially when you are staying in a hotel. Keep in mind that if you are staying in a big hotel, then there are much wi-fi. So you must select a wi-fi network that is near your room, and it is shown by showing the strongest signal of wi-fi.
Normally, the name of the wi-fi network may be the name of the hotel you are staying in. The best thing is that you can ask the hotel staff about the name of the wi-fi network, which is running, and the corresponding password to connect your Kindle to the hotel’s wi-fi.
Entering the Password to the Wi-Fi
If you do not ask for the hotel staff password, you will find the lock icon next to the hotel wi-fi, which you are trying to connect. The answer is simple: you have to enter a password to connect to that particular network. At this time, you have to ask the hotel staff about the password.
I think this must be some hotel rule to keep their wi-fi network locked. After entering the right password, you have connected to the hotel wi-fi successfully. Congratulations! Now, you can enjoy a variety of ebooks, magazines, and newspapers on your kindle device.
Switching off the wi-fi icon when you are not using the Kindle device
It is better to switch off your wi-fi icon when you stop using your kindle device. The reason is that when the wi-fi icon remains on, then it will ruin your kindle device battery, and as we are staying in a hotel, we don’t want this thing to be done.
When you want to turn on the wi-fi again, it will automatically connect to a particular hotel wi-fi network near its range unless the password has been changed. However, if the password remains the same, your device will automatically connect to the particular network.
Factory resetting your kindle fire
If you can still connect your Kindle, then the last solution is factory resetting your device. I will tell you a step-by-step process of how to do its factory settings.
First of all, go to your home screen and swipe it down. Then find the settings and tap on it.
You will find the device option settings. All you have to do is just tap on it.
First of all, scroll down to find the option of “reset to factory defaults.” Then tap on it. You will see a warning in which you will be informed that all of your data will disappear from the Kindle while setting up the factory setting. So if you want to store your data, you can transfer it to your USB. Then you should go to the factory defaults.
However, if you are not interested in saving your data, then you can continue, and at last, you have to tap on the “reset.” At this time, the kindle device is restored, and it will reboot itself. You can easily connect your kindle device to hotel wi-fi by following the steps described above in this article.
Still having issues
If you are still having problems connecting the Kindle to hotel wi-fi or your public wi-fi network, then you should keep in mind that your connection is working properly or not. For example, the server might be down, and you are thinking that your device is not connecting to the wi-fi.
So there can be problems elsewhere. If you confirm that the public network is working properly and following the steps mentioned above, your Kindle must connect to the wi-fi or any other outdoor network. Still, if you are getting a connection problem, then there might be a misconfiguration on your device. So the last solution to this problem is by rebooting your kindle device. On the other hand, you can also go for soft resetting.
