I'm confused. It sounds like you own both the HD and the HDX. So you would know the differences in how they operate. Or am I reading this wrong?
I find the HDX to operate much smoother and faster. I personally would pay the difference.

Yes it sounds like you have both. I got the 8"" HD last year and I love it. This year I upgraded to the HDX 8"" Kindle. I love that one too. DH got last years.
I am not having any issues but I just received it 2 days ago. I really don't notice much of a difference but I am glad they put a camera on the new one. It takes great pictures. If you are having trouble I suggest contacting Amazon. They are very helpful. There is also a site called kindleboards.com that I go to occasionally.

Call Amazon tech support and explain the wifi problem to them. They also have a troubleshooting area on the Amazon website which is very helpful. I bought the 9 inch HD from them over a year ago and had some problems streaming some TV shows. The tech support person was very helpful and resolved the problem.

I have the 7" HD, the 8.9" HD and the 7" HDX. I bought the 7" HDX to replace the 7" HD. I am going to keep my 8.9 HD until the next update. I can't see updating them both this year because of the cost. I use the 8.9" at work and the 7" at home. I don't have the 8.9" HDX to compare weights. I do know the 7" hd weight somewhat more and is bigger than the 7" HDX.
Since I now own the 7" HDX, it is harder for me to resist updating the 8.9" HD. I think the HDX works much faster with no lag time. I am going to make myself wait though.
I was going to sell my 7" HD and decided to keep it. It is ridiculous to have so many, but no more than I'd get out of it I'll use it some. Such as having an extra for grandkids to use while visiting, etc.

Thx for.responses. I talked with Amazon and they had me do restart. So far OK. But weird thing was all my other devices, kindle hd, iPad s and Roku all had to be rebooted with router when I went back on Wi-Fi with Kindle HDX.
Everything seems ok now? Still may switch out 7 for 8.9 HDX.
