Yes, Kindle Fire HD is able to receive WiFi. This device supplies a generic Wi-fi signal, 802.11 b/g.

Most devices that can use WiFi will be able to use this Hotspot for internet access.

answer 3
DP, it will work but it is not going to be optimal.

This device is limited to 3G speeds. Also, the latency will sometimes be high with 3G and therefore can contribute to lag at times.

If you're going to use a Mobile Hotspot for Xbox, it's better to spend more and get one that is 4G LTE.

What is the range of the wifi signal (how far away can a device be)?

answer 1
Wifi to your device(s) is delivered using 802.11b/g speeds. This means that it delivers up to 54 mbits per second. Now don’t worry if you don’t know what that is because essentially this is the equivalent to the same speeds you would have on your home WiFi. This is more than enough for cellular band Hotspot considering the cellular data received from the carrier is nowhere near that speed.

ive been as far away as 100 ft away from RV and still have connection to my Ipad...

I'd say as a general rule, 30-50 "ish" feet for a relatively good signal. It will depend on walls and floors, and what they are made of, etc. Many can get a usable signal throughout the house (average size house?). Under conditions where there are no obstructions, you could get 100-feet or more (outside with no obstructions under ideal conditions).

Obviously, the closer you are to the Hotspot, the stronger the signal and optimal speed is a better possibility. And obviously, the more devices using the device at once will effect performance.

Yes you set it up similar to a regular wireless router and you can set a WEP or WPA password.

The hotspot doesn't default to requiring a password, but you can add one - then it will be as secure as anything else with password protection.

By

answer 3
Yes, you can password-protect the WiFi it produces so that anyone using the data will need a password to access the "signal."

The manual that comes with it should give instructions on how to set the password but if you need additional help, here a good reference page (copy-and-paste):

No, this will be just like your cell phone as it will acquire the cellular signal in the same manner your cell phone would. It's totally independent of any other service. It is its own cellular device and will have its own MDN (phone number).

NO phone line needed. Just buy device and a service card. Take home call # on activation card,charge device,connect to a pc to finish set up. Unplug from pc and start using it.

As long as the area you are driving in is covered by Verizon Wireless, you should be good. For video streaming, yes, should work good, just note that an hour of Netflix is about 0.4GB of data.

Lou, you can use this while traveling down the road but it is not optimal for streaming as it is only a 3G connection which is not ideal for streaming video. You'd do better with a 4G LTE hotspot as ones such as Verizon offers directly to the public.
