Windows network connection validating identity
It would be extremely helpful to get my laptop wifi working at home so I can bring some work home a lot easier, especially through the next 2 weeks of holiday season.
On the first tab, which should be labeled Association, change the network authentication to WPA2-psk, leave the data encryption as AES (though if AES doesn't work try the TKIP).

Sometimes after attempting to disconnect and reconnect the situation rights itself, but it is a nuisance.
Wireless Network Connection shows that the laptop is picking up my home wifi network, and shows that it is connected, but continues to say "Validating Identity" and is not allowing me to access wireless services.- Wireless Network Connection Properties says Connect using: Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection - From there, I select the Wireless Networks tab, and select the name of my home network under the Preferred Networks section, then select Properties - 3 tabs then say Association, Authentication, Connection - Association tab: Network name (SSID) - then, name of my home wifi network Wireless network key Network Authentication: (Open, Shared, WPA, or WPA-PSK) -- I select WPA-PSK Data encryption: (TKIP or AES) -- I select AES Network key --- I enter the password we use on the Netgear wifi server When I hit the "Connect" button to connect to the network, it will say, "Please wait while Windows connects to the network" then after several seconds, it will say that it has connected, but then will sit there with a yellow star above the 5 green bars showing wifi signal strength, and just to the left of the star it says "Validating identity" and will stay that way indefinitely.
The little status icon that's supposed to indicate your wireless network status in the bottom right of the computer screen (in the taskbar) shows a computer with a yellow dot moving back and forth beneath it.
Now open the windows wireless manager (My Network Places, View Network Connections, select the Dell wireless adapter, then click View available wireless networks), select the proper AP from the list, click Connect and configure the connection.
If you no longer have the intermittent connection problems when setup like that, it's time to call Dell.Hello all, 4 APs (Cisco aironet 1130) with overlaping, WPA/TKIP, 802.1x authentication, Protected EAP, MSCHAP v2 without "Automatically use my Windows logon username", hidden SSID, machine authentication is set in PCs registry key HKLM\SW\Microsoft\EAPOL\Pabal, value Auth Mode=2. it's the first step in authenticating a wireless connection on XP/SP2 to RADIUS on Win Server 2003. So we read to documents and perform some tests Logging is on but in the PC logs we dont see any major problems.
