Validating identity problem on wireless

Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box.If multiple clients are unable to connect, follow instructions in our wireless network troubleshooting tip to debug probably AP or router or upstream network problems.

I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.

Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.

For detailed information about a Windows-based authentication infrastructure, see Wireless Deployment Technology and Component Overview.

For detailed information about how to deploy a wireless LAN using IEEE 802.1X authentication, see Deployment of Protected 802.11 Networks Using Microsoft Windows.

If a self-signed certificate (or any certificate from an untrusted CA) is in use, most clients will reject the connection since they cannot validate the server's identity.
