Kindle WiFi fail

So I thought I'd dig out my Kindle and see if anything catches my eye in the store on it... only to be told that "A Wi-Fi connection is required to complete this task". One would have thought that it would remember the details of my wireless network, but apparently not.

It did show my network in the list, so I told it to connect. It thought about things for a few moments, then declared that the password I had entered was incorrect or invalid. Now, I've not touched my network setup for a while now so whatever password it had saved should have worked, but again apparently not. So I dug out the passphrase, entered it in, hit submit... and after a few moments it decided that not only was the password invalid, but my wireless network no longer existed either. And no matter how much I pounded refresh, it was now convinced that my network was a figment of my imagination.

Funnily enough, the computer that I'm typing this post on works perfectly well using that non-existent network.

Eventually I got it to connect, after switching airplane mode on and off several times in the hope that this would actually make the wifi module start behaving.
