My kindle wifi is not working

When I go to Home->settings-> under device info- it says Wi-Fi MAC address: unavailable

I tried to reset to factory defaults but nothing happens!
I also cannot view my Wi-Fi settings because when I select view, nothing happens, too.

Help me please, I am lost without my kindle! oh, and its a kindle 3

It did work in the past but stopped working?

Did it reboot when you "reset to factory defaults?"

Have you checked your wireless router with another device?

I had the exact same problem, my WiFi on my Kindle 3 (now called Kindle Keyboard), firmware 3.0.1 stopped working. I tried your trick and it worked. Thanks a million.

However, the backside was that all my books were erased from the device. :-(
Since I send everything to my Kindle via my gmail I have it all in the archived mail, but I'm writing this as a warning to those who do not...

Also the screen saver hack and keyboard hack that I used are also gone.
