I am having the same/similar issue with my Kindle Fire connecting to my RangeMax WPN824v3. The Kindle "sees" the network but doesn't connect. Signal strength is strong and I have no issues connecting two Microsoft OS laptops and an iPod Touch. Disconnected all devices thinking maybe there was a max number of devices restriction, but still no connection with the Kindle. I've also tried all the standard stuff: validated both router and Kindle have latest software/firmware; re-booted both devices multiple times; etc. I can connect the Kindle to a neighbor's open wireless network, so I disabled the security on my router and tried connecting. Still no luck.

Called Amazon support and they ended up punting to NetGear and telling me I needed to set a static IP on the router. Problem is I am a moron when it comes to networking and don't know how to do this. Also, since all my other devices connect just fine, I don't necessarily want to go messing with the router for fear my other devices will magically no longer connect. I work from home so connectivity is my life-blood. Does setting a static IP sound reasonable? If so, am I setting this on the router or on the Kindle device? The Kindle has a Static IP settings page that includes fields for IP address, Router, Subnet Mask, DNS 1, and DNS 2. Do I put the router's IP address, etc, into these fields? If so, where would I find this info on the router's config pages? Is this the information on the LAN Setup page? If this isn't the correct direction, then I'm stumped.

A bit more info on my router settings:

> Internet IP address is set dynamically from my ISP (Comcast)
> Channel is set to 11
> Mode is set to "b and g"
> Security is set to WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] (Amazon recommends not using WEP)
> No sites are blocked
> Wireless Care Access Control is disabled (i.e., no MAC filtering)
> NAT Filtering is "Secured"

Thoughts? Thanks!

Amazon says the Kindle Fire supports Wireless Security WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK. I have a NG Dualband Router Model WNDR4000 with latest firmare, but still have connection problems. The longest my Kindle Fire has been connected is about a minute.

I would change to WPA only or WPA2 only and see

Without changing the setting in the router you would not able to find solutions.
