    I have an AT&T DSL modem connected to my desktop computer. I just bought a Kindle Fire HD and I need to get it hooked up with WI-FI. Do I need to buy a separate router to have WI-FI or doe my modem already have it?

    howdy, and welcome to TSG. :)

    Can you post the make/model of the modem? Chances are you will need to buy a wireless router, but we want to make sure first.

    I will do my best...I threw out the box it came in after I bought it!I got it from Best Buy in 2009 and it is an AT&T Motorola. There is nothing telling me the make, only a style on the bottom MSTATEA. Hope this helps alittle.

    Yes, that is it! Ok, I will go get me a router so I can start enjoying not having to sit at my computer all day to read my college books. Thank you for your help.

    I always keep my receipts! I am sending my mother out to Best Buy in Reno today and I gave her a list of what I need. told her to call me when she is at the store if they give her a hard time or try to sell her something she does not need, LOL. Thank you again for all your help.
