wireless connection "validating Identity"
14-Sep-08

I am trying to connect a desktop computer using a enhanced-G USB wirless
adapter and I am recieving the connection showing continulessly "Validating
Identity" I have the gigabit-N router setup with a 26 digit WEP code. I
there anyway that I can connect this computer without going down to a 10 or
11 digit code key? I have updated all the XP software downloads and the
latest drivers for the wireless device. My wife has a laptop with XP and it
is connected perfectly with no issues. th router is connected to a Vista OS
machine and my laptop with vista has no issues withthe connection. Any
advice that you can give is appriciated

From the weakest to the strongest, Wireless security capacity is
No Securit
MAC______(Band Aid if nothing else is available)
WEP64____(Easy, to "Break" by knowledgeable people)
WEP128___(A little Harder, but "Hackable" too)
WPA-PSK__(Very Hard to Break)
WPA-AES__(Not functionally Breakable
WPA2____ (Not functionally Breakable)
Note 1: WPA-AES the the current entry level rendition of WPA2
Note 2: If you use WinXP and did not updated it you would have to download
the WPA2 patch from Microsoft. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/89335
The documentation of your Wireless devices (Wireless Router, and Wireless
Computer's Card) should state the type of security that is available with
your Wireless hardware
All devices MUST be set to the same security level using the same pass
phrase
Therefore the security must be set according what ever is the best possible
of one of the Wireless devices
I.e. even if most of your system might be capable to be configured to the
max. with WPA2, but one device is only capable to be configured to max . of
WEP, to whole system must be configured to WEP
If you need more good security and one device (like a Wireless card that can
do WEP only) is holding better security for the whole Network, replace the
device with a better one

Powerline adapters are a better solution in many cases
They are easier to install, secure, more resistant to interferences.
You'll never have to search for new drivers
and worry about WZC, passwords, SSIDs.

Examples of new (200 Mbps) and older (85 Mbps) Powerline adapters:

I have to agree with Pevel regarding the homeplug mains networking if you
have a desktop. I've had great success in the home environment but ensure you
test well in any industrial or business environment as I've tried 5 roll-outs
now with initial success but drop outs after around 20 minutes.

I've tested around 4 brands now and ZyXEL seem to be the most reliable.

Thanks for the advice. I ensured that the XP computer was updated and
changed the wireless router to WPA2 and it connected all my computers without
any issues. Your information was the assistance that I needed. I no longer
have the "Validating Identity" with the internet connection on the XP
computer. Agian thank you for your advice.

These adapters become now dirt cheap, as production moves to the 200

speed.

Hi. I have same problem. I`m tired of looking at message "validating
Identity". I`ve followed your advice by step. I downloaded WP2 patch and
installed it immediately. But I`m still stuck in problem. Could you explain
me how to change WEP to WPA. I`m not computer specialist, just a user. Thank
you

Not all adapters can do WPA2. In your setup of your PC's wireless,
what options you have are all you will get. A quick check of you spec
sheet on the adapter will also tell you. As Jack stated, WEP is bad,
WPA(any sort) is better. It should be in a scroll down list or radio
buttons etc. Its vendor different so I can't be specific.

OT: One other choice if you are using the manufacturers setup software
is you might try letting windows manage the wireless. Its different
software. You should have seen maybe a question pop up asking this. It
did on mine now and then, or there is a check box for it. Its just an
option if you get flustered with the problem.

Hi
You should switch to WPA. WEP is Not very secured no matter how many digits
you use.
If your card does not support WPA get another one, there are good Wireless
USB for about $20
This is a very good one, can do WPA-AES too,
