Wifi issues?

Okay, I've been having some strange wifi/network issues since I got the Kindle Fire. Could be coincidence, but it seems like sometimes the Fire is just incapable of connecting with any app, even when the network is good, and (perhaps coincidentally) other times my internet connection seems to drop out as well.

Anyone else?

No issues here. It could be your router or your signal strength.

It could be the router. Mine wouldn't connect the other day and it was the router mucking up as usual. See if restarting it makes any difference. My router spits out a new IP every second (because it keeps resetting every few minutes) and it makes mobile devices go crazy.

No issues here. I think a faulty router could cause the problem you are having.

I guess its on my end, router or maybe TWC. Just seemed to coincide with the arrival of the KF.

I have noticed another problem related to the wifi though; when the wifi is turned off the page animations in the reader app get more jerky. Another person brought this up in a different thread but I cant remember who. When I tested it it is definitely true.

Also the turn off wifi button sometimes refuses to work.

I leave WiFi off and do not have this problem. I use an app to turn WiFi on and off. It works great but sometimes I have to push the icon twice to get it to turn back on.

I've got TWC high speed internet and it can get flaky at times. Ditto for TWC TV too!
