Windows xp network connections validating identity
Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity. I had an unsecure network connection so I changed the security settings of my tp-link router from WEP to WAP-TKIP. after that, i changed my network settings to the same WAP-TPIK option. It just says "validating identity" and does not ask for a passkey at all. thanks You want to make sure you are using the same version of WPA on each side.If you are telling me that you are using WPA with a shared key on your router, then you are using WPA - Personal. You want to make sure you are using that option on your computer. You do not want to make sure you are not using WPA-EAP. This version requires a certificate server and a matching certificate on yout computer to connect to the wireless.Please refer to the documentation of your vendor's card in order to turn it off as this may interfere with the procedure here documented. = If the eduroam network does not show up, click on Refresh network list.The following table shows which selections are available.
In order to connect to eduroam network in future, simply bring up Wireless Network Connection window by double-clicking its icon in the tray bar , select eduroam network and click on Connect.It looks like you are using WPA-EAP on your computer.unless you are running into the initial problem that most older hardware had. You may need to do a firmware upgrade on your device that is connecting to the router. Firstly you can not use WPA, you can use WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WEP.Since I couldn't connect to my network wirelessly, I decided to connect to it by wire.
Then I just changed the settings of the router back to normal. When setting up WPA you will see the option for either a radius server (Enterprise, and you see this in the corporate environment) or a place to enter a passphrase (Pre Shared Key, PSK).
