Older US Kindle - help required!!

Hi guys,

I have an older Kindle (International version) which was ordered from the US site before the UK site started selling them. It seems that with the new influx of Kindle users, the longer term ones have been forgotten because all support for this model on the Amazon website seems to have vanished.

I have a couple of questions. Firstly, I'm using firmware version 2.5.2. Can I update to the version 3 firmware, or isn't it suitable for this model?

Secondly, I always connect via Whispernet, but my connection isn't great and I can never get books to download properly so have to download them to my PC. I'd love to connect to my home network via Wi-Fi, but I'm not sure if it's possible. There certainly doesn't seem to be an option in the Settings to set it up, but that might be something to do with the firmware version I have.

Any help would be much appreciated!distance between US cities
