Validating identity wireless belkin
Chances are that you don't have any issues when you are connecting to wireless using WEP Encryption.
The problem is usually caused by XP not being updated or patched to handle WPA/WPA-2. displaylang=en&id=1974 Also, check to see if there is an updated driver for your wireless. If it is SP2, you need to upgrade it to SP3 for best connectivity across all encryption modes.
Anyway, the problem at my house and other locations I have been to, is that when my Windows XP machine tries to connect to a wireless network, it just sits there saying "Validating Identity".Maybe some fairly recent Windows XP update automatically checks the "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" box under the Wireless Network Properties?Many of the Windows XP machines I maintain at the office don't have this check box enable. Last week, I did a clean install of Windows XP on a laptop, and when I took it home, I had the validating identity problem and couldn't connect to my home network.HTPC: Silverstone LC16M | abit IP35 Pro | Intel Quad Q9400 2.5GHz | Corsair 520HX | Samsung SH-S203D DVD Writer | NVIDIA Ge Force GT 240 512MB RAM | 2 x 750GB Western Digital Caviar GP HDD | 4GB DDR800 RAM | D-Link DWA-547 Rangebooster N 650 Desktop | Blackgold BGT3540 | Microsoft Remote Control & Remote Keyboard for Windows Media Center | Windows 7 64bit Mobile: Nokia N97, Nokia N900, Samsung Galaxy S, HTC EVO 3D, i Phone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S III (current) But its not working I have got into the Admin, and can see that DHCP is enabled and working..2 PC's showup.wifi connection itself is still not working properly...The wireless connection can be found and connected to, just struggles to assign an IP....header_background_full .header_background_slim .welcome-container .wlc-header .wlc-content .linksys-search-form .
