Validating identity windows wireless
My windows 7 machines connect just fine to the wireless network.
Any idea what the story is behind this Validating Identity thing with Windows XP?
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.
When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.
It says something about windows not finding a certificate.
I just installed a new Linksys ADSL modem/router at home.
On installation, my sons (Vista) machine connected instantly and is running like the clappers. Sly Even if this was working before (on two machines simultaneously?
However, my XP machine has ben sitting on.."Validating identity" for ages. possible but strange) it was weird, insecure (no NAT firewalling) and unnecessarily complicated. Yeah I think we need to figure out what's happening really :) Your computer should not do anything to connect – there should not be a "validating identity" screen, no logging in to a network, or anything like that.
I moved the selection tab to WPA2 only and keep the rest the same and no luck.
By default, 802.1X authentication on Window 7, Window 8.1, and Window 10 consists of not only client authentication but also server authentication, which requires the server (here is the Vigor AP) to provide certificate information to the client.
