Easy steps for kindle WiFi setup or how to connect kindle to the wireless network:

kindle WiFi uses Free 3G and Wi-Fi technology to enable you to wirelessly search, discover, and download content on the go. Your books are delivered wirelessly, typically in less than 60 seconds. If your Kindle has Wi-Fi and 3G, you can choose the most convenient connection. While you’re reading, and for many other activities, your Kindle does not need to connect to a wireless network. Other activities such as shopping in the Kindle Store and purchasing books do require a connection. Your Kindle automatically turns 3G coverage off when you connect using Wi-Fi. If you disconnect from a Wi-Fi or if you move out of Wi-Fi range, Kindle automatically switches back to 3G coverage.

Before connecting the Kindle to wifi network, you should know the settings of your router. If it is secured then you must know the correct key or password. if you are not sure about the settings then you will need to open the setup page of the router and check the settings.

Easy steps to check wireless settings of the router.
