Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.Can anyone out there shed some light on this problem?According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection.So what I did was just: 1) open network connections 2) click properties 3) in the GENERAL tab, click INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP) 4) click Properties 5) choose obtain DNS server automatically My internet worked afterwards. This wasn't my solution unfortunately as I was already using the option for obtaining DNS server automatically.Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.Then if your operating system is windowsxp please follow the attachment to have a try.(they sent me a file attachment with the email) If your operating system is vista please refer to https://
but it keeps on bouncing on the icon activity when I bring up the status it has a big red ?
WPA2 is superior as it doesn't suffer from the recently discovered flaw with WPA that allows limited cracking, though it's not a method to actually allow someone to connect. I had to surf using an unsecured network server for the past months.
It turns out that I was using a specified DNS server when I set up a static IP address for port forwarding for my u Torrent connection.
id=214 I have also seen WPA - Enterprise as just WPA.
You just have to find the common setting between the two devices.
I was on the internet using a wireless hookup, then im not on the internet and its telling me its trying to "Validate Identity" I don't know what this means or what it needs to Validate and or who's or whats Identity?
