I was experimenting along the lines of an earlier post that said when you drop one WIFI connection, you have to reboot before another one will pick up. I found the re-connect sluggish - it wouldn't "see" my AP, until I pressed the SCAN button on the top of the screen, then it found my AP and connected.
From my Sharp Zaurus days, I was familiar with wpa_supplicant.conf which we had to create by hand to get WIFI working on that device. These days it is generated automatically, but I had to look around anyway, and I noticed that the copy in /data/misc/wifi is missing two options:
I didn't change mine since it seems to be working OK, but maybe a WIFI expert would comment on the situation. Why are those options not included, and should they be added?
After a few re-boots, my Kindle seems to be acting normally ????
