Wireless connection says validating identity

22-Sep-2019 21:39

As you can tell I don’t know much about networking : PDuring time that I had DI-624 router.

Under my Local Area Connection Properties and on the Authentication tab Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network was checked.

Everything came pre-loaded on the laptop so I’m not sure why the Authentication tab wasn’t there.

Or perhaps it was a wireless laptop and there is no need for that tab.

EAP type was “ Smart Card or other certificate” and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.

Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.

I can only got rid of it by going to authentication tab and un-checked the Enable IEEE 802.1x thingy.

Due to data security reasons, it is highly recommended that you set the correct settings as instructed in this tutorial below.So if you have access (could be physical access, including say a stolen laptop) you will be able to find the key which will allow any system access to the network... However I’m still confused of why all of the sudden “validating identity” shows up right after I replaced the router from DI-624 to DIR-655. All I did was released the IP before I shut down DI-624 and plug the DIR-655 in powered DIR-655 up and off I go.So I guess I will leave the IEEE 802.1x Authentication disabled then.I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this issue with Windows 10?If you are an undergraduate student, please ask your PI to email on your behalf to confirm that you are affiliated with their lab and should have Wi Fi access.
