    how do you connect to a wifi printer

    hi all

    i googled this and found a few solutions mainly using an app from google play store...

    but when i tried to install it came up with a message which seemed to suggest that it was incompatable with khf

    which i find hard to believe.

    could it be that in settings i have to switch on allow downloads from unexpected sites or some similar message

    alternatively is there another way of setting up a wifi printer

    thanks

    george

    There is an application called Printer Share. Is a little bit expensive but worth every penny IMO. I will let you connect to just about any printer out there. I believe they have a trial version.

    Thanks Rob but I think I have a more fundamental problem.... I cannot download the app because even though I am logged into google using my gmail account the account has no device associated with it....

    So how does one link the kfh to google play store?

    Unfortunately you can't link the Play Store account to the Kindle. It will simply won't be allowed by Amazon. You will have to use the Amazon AppStore.

    Thanks for the link...

    I am SO disappointed with Amazon ... this sucks unbelievably....

    That link is not available in the UK .... absolutely useless when I think of what was spent on my birthday present...

    I am currently considering breaking the warranty and rootkitting this device to get access to stuff I need

    Amazon should be ashamed of not including some elementary pieces in their product... this has turned into a very wet expensive book reader....

    I agree.

    I did rooted mine and I'm running a custom ROM. Haven't looked back ever since.

    Rob, it's late here in UK so I am going to bed, but I would appreciate some pointers on two things...

    I am still learning how to navigate around KFH ...

    I am using a downloaded root kit and following a set of instructions...

    But I need to know how to access the folders on the KPH ... I need to get to the downloaded file and extract some files and in particular to execute some steps which mean launching some apps .... Any pointers would be helpful

    This thread bellow should be helpful......

    Also you will need a file manager application like ES File exploring or Astro File Manager to see the file system on your tab. But once connected to windows it should be very straight forward.
