We explain how to connect your Amazon Kindle Fire HD to a new Wi-Fi network

Depending on where you set you Amazon Kindle Fire HD up, you'll probably be connected to at least one Wi-Fi network already, but what happens if you move location, or want to connect to an alternative Wi-Fi network?

No fear, we're here to show you exactly how to set up additional Wi-Fi connections on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD so you'll never be without an active connection again (assuming you're always in an open Wi-Fi zone).

To access the Wi-Fi settings, pull the top notification bar down on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD and choose Wireless from the shortcuts.

Make sure the Wi-Fi toggle is turned on and choose the network you wish to connect to.

Enter a password if required and Connect. You can opt to turn the Show password option on or off - it's a lot easier to enter the password with it turned on, but only do so when no one can see what you're typing.

If you need to change the IP settings to DHCP or Static, you can do so by selecting IP settings.

If you want to join a hidden network, you can select + Add network which is right at the bottom of the list. To set up a hidden network, you will have to know the Network SSID (network name) and password, plus the type of security type of the network.

When you have selected the network and entered the password, or entered details for a new network, just tap Connect and you should be connected.
