Start Wifi windows xp validating identity

Wifi windows xp validating identity

This means that you will have to disconnect (unplug) the cellular modem (aircard) from the computer and close the cellular connection manager tool provided by your cellular carrier or, disconnect from any LAN (wired Ethernet) or Wi-Fi (wireless) connections before you will be able to connect your computer to the router either by Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi.

I'm currently doing a spare-parts build to put a media computer in the living room, and having a devil of a time getting my Rosewill RNX-6300 wireless card to connect to my network.

I'm trying to set it up using Windows as opposed to the proprietary Rosewill software -- the Rosewill software is a little over my head.

I have a laptop with a Dell D630 with Wi Fi power switch on the side.

If you see a message about Validating Identity upon connecting to the Cradlepoint router, it means WEP security mode is enabled.

I had been able to connect previously, but the connection would always indicate that it was validating.

However, it didnt work, until I disconnected, turned the power off my Wi Fi, unchecked the tab in the authenticate dialog box, clicked ok, then switched the Wi Fi power back on, and reconnected.

There's no WPA2 on the card, just WPA and WPA-PSK: WPA-PSK was the only setting that would let me enter a network key.
