    Are you trying to use wifi tethering?

    maybe I don't really understand "tethering"...here's what I do:

    i go to settings on phone and turn on the "3G Mobile Hotspot"

    the icon on phone is red and i know it's on.

    then i go to my Kindle Fire (1st gen) and turn WIFI on

    it usually connects to my WIFI here at home, and shows all the networks i can connect to

    in the list is "HTC PORTABLE HOTSPOT"

    i connect to it and now i am not connected to my WIFI here at home

    the phone shows that one person is now connected and so does the Kindle

    when i try to access, let's say, FACEBOOK my Kindle says "web page not available"

    i really need to figure this out because it's driving me CRAZY
