Wireless network connection says validating identity
I usually don't go to these settings as it will usually connect as long as you have the right E. I have made sure that "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication" box unchecked in the Authentication TAB? I think there must be an issue with the router's encryption (WPA) and the USB adapter being able to connect to this encryption. Are you receiving an endless “Validating Identity” connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.In a few simple steps you can bypass Windows Validation, and the resulting “Limited or No Connectivity” issue on an encrypted connection.I can't connect it to my wireless network and it says validating Identity. I have followed lots of advice on this topic from other people having this issue, but nothing seems to work. Every time I change my network authentication to WPA, it changes it to WEP once I try to connect to the wireless network.I am not sure what to do next as there seems to be something in the computer that is not set up correctly. Then it asks for my Network authetication and the options are Open, shared, or WPA. I went ahead and used no encryption for my router and then the D Link USB adapter was able to connect.
