Validating identity network
I tried every solution I could find on the net but nothing worked.Then when all was lost I thought as "asdfsadf" did.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.To resolve i went to the manufacturer site and downloaded the latest drivers for the wireless card, and any other drivers i could. I had the same problem with a toshiba satellite p30 running windows xp pro sp3 with an atheros 5004x wireless card.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.Then go to "authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to the availiable network" and that should solve your problem Graham UK i've tried this one, but it didn't work with my laptop Just figured this one out my techy friends, after spending over 6 hours following all of your suggestions and nothing worked. As I did you may need to go into the properties of the rounter under the "Advanced" tab then under the "Wireless settings" remove the checkmark for "Enable Wi Fi" Then click on "Save Settings" This did fix the issue for me.Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
You will need to enter your encryption information here in order to connect to your network.
Because I have a switch to disable the Wifi power, this seemed easier/safer, and it worked. thanks, Solution: remove whatever "preferred networks" are displayed in wireless netwok card's property page, n click ok. happens when u switch to a new router or use a new different SSID.
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".
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.
I had been able to connect previously, but the connection would always indicate that it was validating.
Select your encryption type from the "Network Authentication" and "Data Encryption" drop downs.
