Linksys router validating identity
I have seen this in the router properties (i.e - from Open to WPA), tried this, but then it wont connect at all. This can be entered as 5 or 13 as I characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. This can be entered as 5 or 13 as I characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.I have also read that WEP needs to be switched to WPA. I have also read that WEP needs to be switched to WPA.However, my XP machine has ben sitting on.."Validating identity" for ages. possible but strange) it was weird, insecure (no NAT firewalling) and unnecessarily complicated. Yeah I think we need to figure out what's happening really :) Your computer should not do anything to connect – there should not be a "validating identity" screen, no logging in to a network, or anything like that.Let your router do pppoe and routing, it's really designed for that. It seems that currently, your computer is trying to create a pppoe session (which involves logging in, validating identity etc). Change the wireless settings to create a new wireless ssid that you have not used before.ensure that the wireless drivers are updated to the latest version.
I tried this and when attempting to connect again, a prompt box appeared asking for a network key (also called a WEP or WPA key). It finds the router fine but stalls at \u0027validating identity\u0027. It finds the router fine but stalls at 'validating identity'.
LAN access - both wired and wireless - is unaffected by this.

I have 3 routers ( Linksys wrt300n - Netgear wnr854t - D-link DIR-655 ) no SMC....I just tried to connect to them all, one at a time, with my Lenovo T60 laptop..I cant get the animation ( not in Win XP nor Win Vista - running dualboot)In the windows versions it is possible to disable the animation function..Vista just rightclick on the animation an disable XP go to settings and network connections and rightclik on your LAN connection and choose propertiesand remove the "Show icon in notificationarea when connected"Product: DIR-655 - HW Version: A2 - FW Version: 1.33NAb01Product: DAP-1522 - HW Version: A1 FW: 1.20Product: DWA-643 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 2.0Product: DWA-160 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 1.20 EProduct: DCS-1130 - HW Version: A1 - FW Version: 1.01That's good for getting rid of the symptom, but doesn't solve the cause I want to know why i get this message when using the dir-655 and not when using another router.
It only happens on 1 system and only on the wired port (wireless no issue)Do you run with static IP address or DHCP on your wired LAN..... Its almost sounds like the SMC is making the connection to the PC/Laptop much faster than the D-Link....
