    WiFi bars with little "x"

    I just installed a WiFi extender so we can use our Fires better upstairs. I went through the setup process and tried to log onto the new network. My Fire says it's connected and I'm seeing full bars on the WiFi indicator, but there's a little X next to the indicator and I can't access any websites. What does the X mean, and how do I get rid of it?

    The x means it did not connect. Double check the network key (password). It sounds like perhaps either the extender isn't sending the correct key to the router or the Fire isn't sending the correct key to the extender .
    If that doesn't work try reboot the router.
    If that doesn't work post back and we'll go from there

    FWIW-- our two iPhones were able to get on the extender using that same password, so apparently the extender and router are communicating OK.
