I don't know if this is for all Kindles, but my wife's and mine will only connect to a 2.4Ghz network. So triple check that you have the right password and make sure you are not trying to connect to a 5Ghz network.

You need to hit "Forget".  Restart your Kindle, then locate your network and hit Connect and then put in your password.
