Windows is validating identity for wireless network
I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.If you are telling me that you are using WPA with a shared key on your router, then you are using WPA - Personal. You want to make sure you are using that option on your computer. You do not want to make sure you are not using WPA-EAP. This version requires a certificate server and a matching certificate on yout computer to connect to the wireless.Is the network setup for just auto IP configuration. Oh and make sure that the mac address of the wireless card on the xp machine has not been excluded in a mac address filter in the router.Edit: since you have just reformatted the xp machine.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site. I have an old Dell Dimensions 8400 running Windows XP. I tried this tip that the article gave me, but it did not work.I can't connect it to my wireless network and it says validating Identity. I have followed lots of advice on this topic from other people having this issue, but nothing seems to work. Every time I change my network authentication to WPA, it changes it to WEP once I try to connect to the wireless network.
