When you configure the router, make sure to set it up so that it is backward-compatible with B and G protocols and not just n-only. N-only is fine for laptops, etc., but the Kindle is only capable of using B and G protocols.

Edited to add: read reviews of routers to find out what users have to say about ranges, etc.
Thanks for the clarification, Sue. 3G seems to always be advertised as faster. I've already returned the Kindle 3G and now I'm looking at the Sony PRS-950. Do you know what protocol(s) it uses?
