Wireless router stuck on validating identity
hello i'm new here and i need some help with my laptop(dell latitude c400) .
I'm just purchase a wireless router linksys wrt160n and have it setup on my desktop(hp pavilion mx730) istallation was sucessful but i can not get my laptop (dell) to pick up or at times it gives me a message " windows cannot configure this wireless connection".
Do you have a networking cable you can use to connect your computer to the router? :( if you cannot at all...you'll have to reset the router...
I tired to set up my wireless environment as the document here Wireless Network Authentication Using a Windows 2003 My testing environment has 1 DC/DNS/DHCP/CA/IAS/RRAS installed.
I suspect a firmware upgrade probably fixes that behaviour.
I'd start by reviewing the event logs on your IAS server for reasoning as to why it's not authenticating your client.
So in this case, and probably a few other times over the years, if I try to connect to wireless networks using WPA before I get all the windows updates, I'll probably have issues. One additional comment - that update is apparently part of Service pack 3.What we are looking for is specific for the connection to your wireless network. where can i go to download office 2003 on the web ?We want to get to a page that asks if you want to "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network." If you disable this (no check mark), does the "validating identity" problem go away? 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".There is some checkbox in the properties window that I now have to uncheck it seems in order to get this resolved, but even then, it doesn't always work.
