Nook Simple Touch without wi-fi
Just got my new Simple Touch, and every time I start it up, it wants a wi-fi connection. I can't do anything with the device. I don't have a wi-fi network, my house is fully ethernet wired. I used the latest and greatest Calibre to try to upload a PD epub book, didn't do it. Upload attempt was via USB, and didn't work. No failure msg, just doesn't work
All I get is the brain dead, please connect. I can't connect via wi-fi, because I have no wi-fi, and have no need of it.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble require that you link the thing to your B&N account. They are pretty clear about this before you buy (hopefully). They are probably selling it at cost, so they insist you hook up to their sales system.
If you go register it somewhere then after that you will not need wi-fi. (But if you choose to add a credit card, don't do that over an unsecured network.)

Like Mujokan says you need to register it over wiFi before you can use it at all. That is a one-time-only though. So take you Nook to McDonlads or wherever there is free WiFi, register it (you don't have to put in any credit card details). Then you can turn off WiFi for the rest of the Nook's life!

I don´t want to be mean, but get a wifi router. This same thing happened to me a couple of years ago, and since I bought the router life around the house changed dramatically. Besides, you won´t be able to buy any books from B&N if you don´t connect to wifi. They don´t give you the chance to download to your computer.

You an either use Nook for PC or download the books from your libary on the B&N website.
You should always make a backup of your books. There is no guarantee that your books will always be available for downloading.
