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:
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.
Wireless settings appear (see the following figure).Wireless settings allow you to select an available network to join.
Tap a network in the list of available wireless networks to sign in.
You have to enter a password to sign in to some networks. If you’re already connected to a network when you tap it here, you get information about the connection (the signal strength, link speed, and so on).
