Xp wireless validating identity problem
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 unchecked the authentication box in network properties and entered the existing network key. steve UPDATE: My home net was set to WPA2 (from my Win7 desktop), which XP doesn't appear to offer. The IE error apparently is due to an old version, I switched to Firefox and there are no further problems.
None of these changes gets saved.I try to connect, I get a permanent validating identity message and all of the settings I entered are erased.
I can't access the router setup page because Internet Explorer loads, then encounters an error and has to close.

Since 2002 when XP first came out up until probably around the past year or so, I never had to uncheck the "Enable 802.1x authentication". I have slipstreamed my XP install cd with Service pack 3, so my installs all usually have svp3 right from the start.
I am just trying to figure out why that is an issue now and not before. But the other day, when I had this problem, I had downloaded the wireless NIC driver, and was trying to attach to my wireless network so I could run windows updates.
Chances are that you don't have any issues when you are connecting to wireless using WEP Encryption.
The problem is usually caused by XP not being updated or patched to handle WPA/WPA-2. displaylang=en&id=1974 Also, check to see if there is an updated driver for your wireless. If it is SP2, you need to upgrade it to SP3 for best connectivity across all encryption modes.
