Router validating identity problem
First of all go to the "Wireless Networks" tab and then open the properties of the wireless network to which you are trying to connect.
After that you have to go to "authentification" tab and there you have to untick the box which says "Enable IEEE802.1x to the available network" and I am sure that it will solve the issue for you.
You it does not help then try it again with wireless but this time you have to disable the router for wireless security.
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.
Everything was working fine when she picked it up, specifically the wireless. I did a search for this and maybe one of the fixes will work. Here is the manual for her router so if you are doing this over the phone you can see what she is seeing. Unplug the power to the router then plug it back in.
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.
I would think it would be easier to just hack into most routers with User- admin and Password- password. With her laptop turned off have her connect it to the router via an Ethernet cable.
How can it be that easy to break the arbitrary numbers and letters?
