Linksys stuck on validating identity
After this remove your router from preferred networks list. I had this problem on a laptop (lenovo) which i reinstalled xp on.
I tried every solution I could find on the net but nothing worked.Troubleshooting Tools in Windows Wireless AP Troubleshooting Tools IAS Troubleshooting Tools Troubleshooting IAS Authentication and Authorization Summary Related Links The tools for troubleshooting wireless connections in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are the Network Connections folder and tracing.The Network Connections folder and the notification area icons provide information about the state of the authentication.I have a laptop with a Dell D630 with Wi Fi power switch on the side.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.
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.
