Linksys wrt110 validating identity
Just copy the DIR-655 router name, security password..to the computers wireless adapter should fix the in to the router with the computer that can, you know 192.168.0.1, go to advanced/network filter, check that MAC filtering is disabled, the go to WIFI protected setup, check that it is disabled, usually the DIR-655 has at least one of them enabled by default Ummm, my wireless laptop never had problem with validating identity only 2 wired computers are should validating identity.
All 3 of our computers can get into the router (2 wired and 1 wireless).
Those were there as soon as I installed the XP on two of our desktops 2 years ago.
I never mess with those settings, obviously I know nothing about the networking LOL.
Your computers still have the old security setting and router name on it.
That is the reason all the sudden "validating identity" show up on the computers.
You can set up the router manually, without the CD.
The first time you open the Web-based utility, use the default password admin.
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.
My laptop the Authentication tab wasnt even there for me to mess with.
Everything came pre-loaded on the laptop so Im not sure why the Authentication tab wasnt there.
Under my Local Area Connection Properties and on the Authentication tab Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network was checked.
EAP type was Smart Card or other certificate and Authenticate as computer when computer information is available was checked.
