lost wifi on HDX and HD8 (IP config failure)
« on: May 21, 2017, 05:07:49 PM »
Both my Kindle's lost wifi connections at the same time.  My HDX and HD8 get the error message DHCP error and IP config failure.
Any ideas??

My main desktop is working fine and has my connection working.  What might have happened?

I unplugged my router and let it come on again. It repaired the wifi on both my Kindles.  Problem solved.

Congrats on figuring it out. Most people don't realize that modems and routers are computers and occasionally should be rebooted just to clear things up.
