Users report slow speeds, problems connecting

As Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet arrives on customers' doorsteps, some users are complaining of problems with Wi-Fi functionality. The retailer's Kindle forums include a long list of replies under the discussion "Kindle Fire cannot connect to Internet." Some users claim they cannot connect to Wi-Fi networks, while others can connect to a router but cannot access the Internet.

Although the tablets have just begun to ship, the company has already released a software update. The release brings new options for magazines, children's books, e-mail access and Facebook integration.

The v6.1 release notes do not mention any bug fixes, though users have reported mixed results by manually installing the update via USB. Some claim the update resolves their connection problems, while others are still reporting problems running the latest firmware.

Amazon has yet to publicly acknowledge problems with Wi-Fi connectivity.
