It connects fine if there is no password, but as soon as there is a password you get validating identity.
For some reason his laptop keeps saying validating identity while security is enabled I've tested it on a number of different networks and always get the same thing.
When she got it home she said she was getting this error message that her wireless wasn't working. I took it back to my house and it didn't have any problems connecting to the wireless router. OS- Windows XP SP3 Laptop- Compaq Presario V6000 Wireless Router- Netgear N 150 WNR1000v2 Cable Modem- Arris TM502G Browser IE 8 Thanks. Once the router settles, open another browser window and see if she can surf. If yes unplug the Ethernet from the laptop and try to connect wireless.
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.
id=214 I have also seen WPA - Enterprise as just WPA.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.
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.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).As long as you use the same options for both, you should be fine. WPA-TKIP or WPA-PSK is typically the names for personal WPA. My problem was not actually answered by the TP-LINK technical support staff.There are some areas; however, that only have 5 clients and the issue is still prevalent.I did notice consistency in one building where the people who could not connect had new Dell 6400 laptops and they were trying to connect to 1231 AP's - the new 1242 fixed their issue.
Any help would be great Thanks jeremy Edited by jeremy_smitty5, 10 January 2009 - PM.
