Getting Online with Kindle Fire HDX by Using Wi-Fi

Unless you own a 4G LTE version of Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Fire HDX is a Wi-Fi–only device, meaning that you have to connect to a nearby Wi-Fi network to go online. You might access a Wi-Fi connection through your home network, at work, or via a public hotspot, such as an Internet cafe or airport.

When you first set up your Kindle Fire HDX, you can choose a Wi-Fi network to use for going online. If you want to log on to a different network, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the Home screen to display Quick Settings, which reveals a menu of common settings, such as Quiet Time, Wireless, and Brightness.

  2. Tap Wireless.

    Wireless settings appear (see the following figure).

    Wireless settings allow you to select an available network to join.
