for day to day use leave the wi-fi switched off, just turn it on and connect to your lan when you need/want to install a new book to it. i don't know why you can't connect to your homenetwork but it should be able to using wpa2 and a passphrase(this is not the same as "using 802.1X authentication methods" ). all i did when i bought my mum one for xmas was to connect it to her local network, register it with amazon and that's it, any time she wants to buy a book she just turns the wifi on, it automatically connects to her lan and then she can browse the books and click on buy and it starts downloading to her kindle.

Terry, I worked with a tech at Kindle/Amazon and there was a glitch with my 3G ver 4.0 in that i could not use my homenetwork to connect to the internet. Working together, that has been resolved. She consulted others and together they were able to help. After about 7 tries, the characters started to behave so that they were hidden as I typed. It appears that you can go directly to the site via WIFI or you can use your home network to do so. Peter

just noticed your reply peter, glad you got it sorted. how you enjoying using it? is it as enjoyable as a book? was thinking of getting one for myself at some point but i'd need a water proof version, i'm always reading while having a relaxing soak in the bath and dropping my books off the side into the water.. just thought i'd correct you a little and point out wi-fi is the connection to your home network and it's 3g your meaning when you say wi-fi and that uses the mobile phone network/masts to connect to amazon. i knew what you meant tho and so did you probably. that's the more expensive version than the one i bought for my mum, nearly got that one but didn't have enough money at the time.
