Wireless connection ( VALIDATING IDENTITY )

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, I just reformatted one of the computer and after i installed all the drivers for mobo i figured i cannot connect to the internet. Im on the D-Link DIR-655Wireless Router and im using XP PRO SP2 if that helps. So basically, I keep getting an error when i try to connect to my own network

"VALIDATING IDENTITY

Windows was unable to find a certificant to log you on to the the network"

I entered the correct network key that was setup with the router and im really frustrated because i tried everything in the options and nothing works.
I searched on the internet who had similar problems and none of those helps as well Anyhow, does anyone know what to do to solve this ? its already been 4 days and i still cannot log on to my computer.

P.S It never happened before I reformatted my computer

Thanks in advance.

Does your router have a "wired" hub/switch? If so, does the computer connect if you plug it directly into your router instead of using the wireless?

If your computer can connect to your network via the wire... then I'd troubleshoot the wireless by doing the following:

1) Make sure that the MAC address of the wireless NIC card is in the "accepted" list on the router.

2) For the time being, disable the option to secure the wireless by MAC addresses.

3) Disable all of your WEP or other security protocals

Once you've done this, try to connect the PC using the open wireless connections. If your PC can see the network while it is open, then I'd lock down the MAC address tab first and look again to see if your PC can connect. If it does, then next enable your other security protocol, put the password into the PC and see if it continues to connect.


If you try all of this and can't get a connection, then I'd relook at the NIC drivers first.. possibly re-installing them.

Also... check to see if you have any Anti Virus or internal firewalls (like ZoneAlarm) active. If you do, make sure that you have set the IP address of the wireless PC as having permission to access your network. You probably should also turn off all AV and internal firewalls on all active computers on the network while troubleshooting the above steps.

Good luck getting it all working.
