The 'normal' default route on the Kindle **is** the wireless connection.

It is just the USB networking cable that needs some TLC to make it the default route.

I did not try to propose a solution 'for everybody' - just mentioned what some people do.

The micro-USB connector was designed with these past failings in mind and has a rated lifetime of about 10,000 insertion cycles. This despite its apparent frailty and what may appear to be a less robust design.

Your battery will wear out before that connector does.
