    Unhappy My Kindle fire HD 7" 16 GB connects to the network but wont connect to the internet

    I bought a kindle fire HD 7" 16GB tablet from yesterday and I am really perplexed as to why it wont connect to the internet. I have a friend who has the same kindle as mine but she is able to connect without any problems browsing and all. All the devices: two acer laptops, a samsung galaxy tab and her kindle were able to connect via the linksys WRT54G router but my kindle wont connect to it. I keep seeing a little "X" at the wifi signal inidcator and I cannot browse or do anything but I am connected to the network. I have tried rebooting the router and switching on/off my kindle device and its wifi. I even tried using the router without a WPA2 security password on it or using a different encryption type like WEP or WPA and it still wont connect to the itnernet. I heard some stories where people fixed this by making the name of their router (SSID) one word instead of two words with a space and they were able to connect to the internet but the SSID for my router is one word so it doesnt work for me. The firmware on the kindle when i bought it was older than the kindle my friend had. the firmware version at the time was 7.1.x something i dont really remember the exact number but I updated the firmware to 7.2.3 and it is still giving the same problem. Can anyone in this community help me out?
