Validating identity on linksys n router
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.In most of the home wireless networks, authentication may not be uses.I would also like to recommend you the same thing as it was posted before by Snake08 but in addition to that post if that is not working then you can try to add the network manually.You should also do that and I hope this will help you too.You can use the Ethernet cable to connect the computer to the router.I want to connect this computer without going down to a 10 or 11 digit code key but I don? Remove the driver for the wireless device and download the latest driver from internet and install in on your computer.My wife was also having the same issue with her laptop and she did the same and now she is not getting the issue.
Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.When you are doing that manually then you should make sure that the key provided is automatically is unchecked. If you want to fix this then you have to go to the properties page of the wireless connection. After that I enabled the adapter again and I found that it gets connected. I hope that it will work in your case and should connect then.First of all go to the "Wireless Networks" tab and then open the properties of the wireless network to which you are trying to connect. If that works then it is a wireless problem and there is more possibility that I it is a wireless security.You it does not help then try it again with wireless but this time you have to disable the router for wireless security.
