Xp stuck on validating identity
I have a laptop with a Dell D630 with Wi Fi power switch on the side.
I tried every solution I could find on the net but nothing worked.To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen wireless network you are trying to connect to.Then go to "authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to the availiable network" and that should solve your problem Graham UKRight, Graham's solution worked for me.After this remove your router from preferred networks list. I had this problem on a laptop (lenovo) which i reinstalled xp on.This will allow you to pick your router from available wireless network again, and put in your encryption code. I tried all the other stuff like disabling 802.11 settings under properties blah blah ..nothing worked.This seemed to work for me after I disconnected from my router and reconnected again.
However, you may have to go into "view wireless networks", and then choose "change order of preferred networks" in left corner of screen.
thats all you need Go to start than go to run enter cmd type in ipconfig press space bar / release than press enter, then type ipconfig press space bar / renew wait for new ip address should be good .
ps make sure your connected to ethernet when doing once you get new ip address your good to go disconnect ethernet To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen wireless network you are trying to connect to. Vince I did not find the above fix for the problem to completely fix the problem.
I had been able to connect previously, but the connection would always indicate that it was validating.
However, it didnt work, until I disconnected, turned the power off my Wi Fi, unchecked the tab in the authenticate dialog box, clicked ok, then switched the Wi Fi power back on, and reconnected.
cheere Hadn't read all solutions so I apologize if I'm repeating someone but all I did was go back to Belkin router setup utility, or (192.168.2.1) and clicked "wi fi protected setup".
