* I am linking to the same thing at the regular Amazon site, and at AmazonSmile. When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

      Thanks for writing, zahadum!

      I appreciate you taking the time to write! Could you let me know where you saw the broken link? It happens that I’ll post a link which works, and then the source site (Amazon, in the case you describe) changes something in the intervening years (I’ve been doing this for close to nine years). For example, was it on the home page? I’d like to fix it.

      I have written in the blog about trouble-shooting, and I’ve written about network connections, but those things have also changed over the years. Tell me a bit more about your situation: what kind of Kindle do you have? What were you trying to do (for example, were you trying to connect at work to a company intranet, or at a place like a Starbucks)?

      Did you buy your Kindle from Amazon.com/in a USA store? Different geosites for Amazon have different communities/help pages. Here is the device help page for Amazon.com:


      Here’s a link for the Amazon.com Kindle EBR (E-Book Reader) forum:


      Hope that helps…
