Wireless connection says validating identity

Rated 3.90/5 based on 755 customer reviews

Reset or change the security settings on the two wired computers. For right now I just disabled (unchecked) "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication for this network" on both wired computers. But now by doing so, would it do any harm to my network? If you have a home network, it's unlikely that you have a RADIUS server - so that's OK.

Note: IEEE 802.1X security is the highest of those available. Because the key is not shared - it's issued by the server, and is unique to your machine. While both WPA2 and WPA security are excellent, their weakness is that the key is shared between all systems on the network.

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.

I suspect a firmware upgrade probably fixes that behaviour. If you want to accept both computer credentials and user credentials you'll need to name both "Domain Comptuers" and "Domain Users" in your policy.

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

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 cannot get WPA2 enterprise to work on my network. Windows Domain, using IAS and its own CA Linksys WAP200 Access Point I setup the AP to use WPA2-Enterprise Mixed using RADIUS I setup and registered IAS on the domain controller.

I added the AP as a client with and have tried using both RADIUS Standard and Cisco as the RADIUS type.
