You need more detailed information from your network person. The Kindle can connect to some enterprise networks, but not all. There's more information here:

If the Kindle doesn't support the specific authentication protocol used at work, there's nothing you can do.

People have successfully connect to enterprise networks on Kindle 3 (keyboard) and Kindle 5 (touch), and WPA-EAP support is even built into firmware 5.1.0.

There are a number of solutions posted in the kindle developer's corner forum. Here are some links for K4 and K5:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=1962379

I need to search the forums for the older K3 links....

EDIT: Found one! Here is one of the links that show how to do it on a K3:

Although amazon says at the link provided above by Talldog that you CANNOT connect to networks that need a certificate, here is a link that shows how you CAN do it:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=1137608

It is usually not safe to claim that things cannot be done, just because you do not know how to do it yourself (and that goes for amazon too)...
