No internet connection validating identity
Once I unchecked that box and tried to reconnect to the wireless network, everything worked fine!
Are you receiving an endless "Validating Identity" connection status when trying to connect to a wireless network.
For the laptop all I did was typed in the SSID name and entered the WPA2 password in Broadcom utility and off I go.
For those 2 desktops after I replaced the DI-624 to DIR-655 and that is when all of this Validating Identity started.
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.
Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.I never mess with those settings, obviously I know nothing about the networking LOL.My laptop the Authentication tab wasnt even there for me to mess with.Search Form #lia-body .linksys-search-form .lia-js-hidden #lia-body .linksys-search-form .search-input #lia-body .linksys-search-form .lia-search-form-wrapper .search-granularity #lia-body .linksys-search-form .lia-component-common-widget-search-form input.lia-button-search Form-action #lia-body .linksys-search-form .
