If it was reported lost or stolen, this is for a reason. You should contact Amazon to return the device to its proper owner, and the police to bust the person that sells "lost or stolen" goods. You might even get your money back.

SOURCE: My Kindle will reconize the

I am not familiar with the kindle, however your premis, " but if it was then my laptop would not be able to connect to the Internet. ?" is not exactly correct. When your network was set up someone put a password in to protect your network from having unauthorized connections to it. That password is needed by every computer that has a network card. Someone added that password to your laptop, but if I were to come into your house (invited of course) my computer would see your network name, but I would not be able to access it untill you told me your password and I entered it into my network access. What your kindle is telling you is that you must put that password into its network card, and after that it will remember it just like your laptop. Now if you were to take your kindle to McDonalds, it would not need a password and would connect up. This is because McDonalds operates an "OPEN" network that does not have a password and welcomes everybody to connect up. Remember when you use the McDonalds "OPEN" network, your session would be available to any one that wanted to snoop, and could capture what you wrote including paswords to banks, other networks etc.

If my suggestions do not clear up the problem, consider resubmitting the query and including what the error message is. I am assuming that you acquired the Kindle from a retail seller in an unopened box. If it was an eBay seller and the box had been opened, you may want to return it to the seller; it may have been pre-registered by someone else. Moving on...

You might want to go to my last suggestion first! There appears to be new Kindle software and in the past, if one did not have an update, there was a problem with registration. And at the bottom of all my suggestions is a link regarding updates.

If the updates do not fix the problem with registration, you may try a hard reset which restores the device to factory settings. (Sadly, that means it will remove the updates, too, which will have to be reinstalled.)

Try a hard reset. This "restores" a device to factory settings. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Next, release that button. Next, Wait two minutes for it to reboot. Next, slide the switch to turn it on.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show Quick Settings, and then tap Wireless.
  2. Verify that Airplane Mode is Off.
  3. Next to Wi-Fi, tap On.
  4. Tap a network to connect to it.
Try to register it, again.

If this does not work, plug the kindle into the charger for 15 minutes and then try a reboot with the charger attached. Then try to register it, again.

I am providing a link to the latest Kindle software updates. If your Kindle does not have the current updates, it may not register. This has been a problem with registering Kindles in the past. And the site does say there is a new update.
