    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

    Try to use WPA
    WEP is Not safe, and "Quirky" to begin with
    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

    Setting up a wireless network can be too frustrating
    and, if the computer isn't portable, the effort is wasted for nothing
    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.

    I have Devolo starter kit (pair of preconfigured adapters) and another

    These adapters become now dirt cheap, as production moves to the 200
    Mbps standard. Still, 85 is much more than my home internet connection
    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

    See response bottom posted as should be.
    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.
