The Amazon Kindle Fire began shipping this week and now news is surfacing from various users that the devices Wi-Fi functionality is less than stellar.
Users have taken to the retailer’s Kindle forums to list a variety of complaints. In some instances users say they can’t connect to Wi-Fi networks, in other cases they can connect to a router but can’t access the internet.
Following the release of the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets the nation’s largest e-tailer quickly released a software update which provides more options for magazines, e-mail, Facebook integration and children’s books. Titled version v6.1 the release does not mention any bug fixes although some users have had success with the connectivity issue when installing the software via USB.
While some users believe the new firmware has fixed their connectivity issues other users claim that they are still experiencing problems.
Amazon at this time has decided to pull an Apple and let consumers complain without publicly addressing the issue, likely in the hope that they can find a solution for the problem and acknowledge the issue with a quick fix.
