Validating indentiy on a wireless network
When I try to connect using the windows zero configuration utility it gets stuck validating identity.It says something about windows not finding a certificate. It connects fine if there is no password, but as soon as there is a password you get validating identity. For some reason his laptop keeps saying validating identity while security is enabled I've tested it on a number of different networks and always get the same thing.
I am sharing a secured wireless internet connection and the signal is strong.
This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.

The weird part is that I was using WPA TKIP with the passphrase and it was working fine.
I moved the selection tab to WPA2 only and keep the rest the same and no luck. Ok so I setup the router to only transmit wireless N and to use WPA2 only.
