IPad & Kindle Fire connection problems

Have new Ipad and kindle fire that will not connect to internet. Both connect to wireless but when we try to go on line they will not connect. We have an old Westell 327W DSL router. Could this be the problem. Regards

Re: IPad & Kindle Fire connection problems

The type of router you have shouldn't be the problem. With any wireless device you have to put in the correct WEP key (password) in order to get connected. If you are not sure what it is, log into the router and retreive it from the settings. If you need further help please reply back so any one of us can assist.

Re: IPad & Kindle Fire connection problems

I am having the same exact problem.  My Kindle Fire finds the network but won't sync/download or anything.  Amazon put the problem on the router, and Verizon put the problem on the Kindle.  Went to a wi-fi cafe and no problem occurred so it has to be my home router but no ownership by Verizon.  I have a WEstell router

Re: IPad & Kindle Fire connection problems

My understanding is that the multiple characters show up as a security feature to avoid (preclude) anyone determing how many actual characters there are in your password.  Just type in your password anyway, and you should be fine. - Provided that is the only problem

This is a security feature. It's to prevent someone from looking over your shoulder to see how many characters are in the password. Please type in your password as it is, ignoring how many characters show up on the screen.
