Problem validating identity wireless connection
As you can tell I dont know much about networking : PDuring time that I had DI-624 router.
Under my Local Area Connection Properties and on the Authentication tab Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network was checked.
Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.
Note: IEEE 802.1X security is the highest of those available. Because the key is not shared - it's issued by the server, and is unique to your machine. While both WPA2 and WPA security are excellent, their weakness is that the key is shared between all systems on the network.
Flaming or offending other users Illegal activities: Please try again now or at a later time.
Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.
That is the reason all the sudden "validating identity" show up on the computers.
Just copy the DIR-655 router name, security password..to the computers wireless adapter should fix the in to the router with the computer that can, you know 192.168.0.1, go to advanced/network filter, check that MAC filtering is disabled, the go to WIFI protected setup, check that it is disabled, usually the DIR-655 has at least one of them enabled by default Ummm, my wireless laptop never had problem with validating identity only 2 wired computers are should validating identity.
I never really mess with those, I left them at the default settings but will check.
Im not sure that is the Advanced tab you are talking about.EAP type was Smart Card or other certificate and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.For the laptop all I did was typed in the SSID name and entered the WPA2 password in Broadcom utility and off I go.
