Windows xp validating identity wireless network

Try connecting computer to router by ethernet cable -- if it then works, it's a wireless problem, possibly with wireless security.

Try again with wireless but with wireless security disabled in the router.

If that works, have another look at how you set the router's wireless security settings and the wireless adapter/computer wireless security settings.

Click "Properties" then open the "Authentication" tab.

UNCHECK the top box "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network".

This assumes you are NOT using any authentication at all.

If you are, this will not fix your issue, but on most home wireless networks, you will not be using any authentication...

Abstract This article describes the tools used to troubleshoot a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003-based wireless client, a wireless access point (AP), and the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) when using Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X authentication for IEEE 802.11-based wireless connections.

This article also describes the most common problems with IAS authentication and authorization, certificate properties, and the process of certificate validation for both wireless client and IAS server certificates.This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.For background information, see Wireless LAN Technologies and Microsoft Windows.For detailed information about a Windows-based authentication infrastructure, see Wireless Deployment Technology and Component Overview.For detailed information about how to deploy a wireless LAN using IEEE 802.1X authentication, see Deployment of Protected 802.11 Networks Using Microsoft Windows.For information about how to troubleshoot wireless connectivity on wireless networks that do not use 802.1X authentication, see Troubleshooting Microsoft Windows XP-based Wireless Networks in the Small Office or Home Office.
