  7. Under Wi-Fi Networks, tap the network you want to connect to.

  9. If an encryption key or password is required, you will be prompted to enter it.
  10. Enter the key and then tap OK.

    NOTE: You may find it helpful to tap the Show Password box. Since some passwords are a mixture of upper and lower case letters and numbers this makes it easy for you to check to ensure that you have entered the password correctly.

    NOTE: Once the Wi-Fi network is configured, your Reader™ Digital book will connect to it whenever it is in range. When the Reader device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon appears in the top-right of the Reader screen. The more bars you see on the icon, the stronger the connection.

    IMPORTANT: If after following this procedure you are unable to establish a connection, a different procedure is available for troubleshooting Wi-Fi connections .
