It's not off-topic. A problem like this can cause people to decide to NOT go for the Paperwhite, as Using Collections + No Internet seems to be a very bad combination if using the KPW2 on Firmware 5.4.2..

But, as I said, this problem may have already been solved; the firmware is now at Version 5.4.2.1..

When it restarts you have the additional fonts available to you.
This does not work on the KPW2. It is expected to stop working on the KPW1 as well, should that reader get another firmware update.

It doesn't. That's the entire point.

Instead of just storing the collections and syncing at the earliest opportunity, it tries to sync immediately, and nags if there is no internet.

Try to put book into collection -> Kindle wants to sync -> No internet! -> NagNag.

At least, that is what I understand that is happening, starting with firmware 5.4.2.0.

If your router/modem does not have Wifi, and you won't or can't replace it, then why don't you just put a very basic wireless access point on your network? In the Netherlands, you can have one for under €20. They are just 100 Mbit, but that's more than fast enough for a Kindle.

It's either that, or keeping the Kindle at a 5.4.0.x. firmware version if you want to use collections. (Again, assuming the problem is NOT yet solved.)
