    Hi There

    I am using Windows XP - Server Pack 3 and installed a new wireless router
    and found that I have two issues I would like some help with:


    1.
    I can connect to the router, however the link says "validating identity".
    I can view the internet and send/receive emails etc. however, this
    notification
    keeps popping up. Is this something to be concerned about and how can I
    fix it?

    2.
    When I connect a different laptop, this laptop cannot connect to the
    wireless printer that is on the network. I have read through instructions
    etc. but cannot find how to change it. Any ideas?

    Many thanks
    Bianca

  2. 1. Try to add the router IP to the Trusted site. To do that, go to
    IE>Tools|Internet Options>Security.
    2. Can you ping the wireless printer IP?
