I have it in Australia on 2.3.3.

It didnt work a couple of days ago. Then out of curiosity, I unregistered, then re-registered and it works now.

I did not test immediately beforehand, so I may have gained access co-incidentally in those few days proceeding and not known.

It's not that exciting. It's slow, and I'm expecting Amazon to send me a fat bill if I use it much because I am international.

This is exactly what I did, but I did check directly before de-registering.
Before, no access except Wikipedia. Directly after re-registering; full access!

I'm in Melbourne and I run 2.3.3 and it has internet out of the box. I didn't have to do anything and I can google, shop and download books.

I tried this too, but it did not work for me. I unregistered, than registered anew, but I still have only limited access. Seems I have to wait for 2.5.

I live in Canada.

Just received my Kindle 2 yesterday. I am running 2.3.3 and seem to have full internet access.

Being a new user, I am curious to know if this is free to use?

(also on a sidenote -- so annoying that the majority of best seller books are not available to Canadian consumers! )

I am really curious what the pattern is (if any). I bought my Kindle 2 in Nov 2009 when it first was orderable for Canada. I have bought a few Kindle titles but certainly not "a lot". I manually installed the 2.3.4 update for the Kindle 2i when it was released. "Full" Internet arrived in mid to late May; I definitely only had wikipedia access before that. I live in Toronto.

I don't think I'd use the WWW aspect of the Kindle much but it's very nice to have in a pinch. It was also be cool to get Calibre server talking to the Kindle ... but so far I can't get Calibre past the home router firewall. Then, when on holiday, I'd have access to my entire library.

This thread helped me get set up with calibre's content server and my kindle. It worked for me.

I'm with you up to the point of actually getting the file onto the Kindle. I have Calibre .7 installed; I've transferred my library in mobi to a Kindle directory; I can log in and see specific files with the Kindle 2. What do I do next to download? Pressing the "enter" key or pressing down on the joystick doesn't appear to activate a download (and how would it know where to put the file so the Kindle can read it?).

I must have missed a step. Any hints?
