If you are truly connected to your Jetpack (IP Address = 192.168.x.x) and not able to browse then I would suggest performing the various resets to the Jetpack as it may be suffering from a temporary glitch of some kind.  Resets include power cycling the Jetpack, Removing the SIM card for 30 seconds and finally restoring the defaults with the button under the back cover of the Jetpack.

If you are not actually connected to your Jetpack (IP address = 169.254.x.x) then you most likely need to delete your wireless profile for the Jetpack on the Kindle and start over again from scratch.

The Jetpack should have a menu option that allows you to review and confirm which devices are actually connected.  You will have to cross compare MAC addresses with the devices you are aware of to figure out which ones are connected or not.  Otherwise checking the IP address on the Kindle is usually a good enough indication on if it is connected or not.
