Validating identity on a wireless network
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.The wireless keeps trying to "validating identity" and states it is missing a certificate. The router just had all settings wiped out, there is no security setup, you just did a fresh install of the drivers and it connects at your place. If it doesn't, uninstall the wireless card from Device manager and reboot. The MAC address of that PC is used by Comcast to get your connection. On the back of the router, there is a reset button.All you have to do is just open the "Wireless Network Connection" from available wireless networks and now click on the "Change Advanced Settings" and after that you have to go to "Wireless Network Connection properties".
Then it asks for encryption Key and the options are WEP or disabled. I have never seen this before on any of my computers. I am yet to try WEP Encryption with my router to see if that works.
Whenever I try to do that it shows me some message which says "Validating Identity".
I have 26 digit WEP code for the gigabit-N router setup. Any help from any one on this forum will be appreciative. I think that you have to update all the Windows XP software downloads.
Why is this the only network connection that does this?
I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.
