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.

Double click that status icon to pull up Wireless Network Connection Status and it shows Connection Status: Validating identity Network: (name of my home network) Duration: (currently at -- yes "connected" for almost 3 hours, but not actually allowing internet connectivity) Speed 54.0 Mbps Signal Strength: 5 bars Activity Packets: Sent 256 Received 3 Sorry if this is over-detailed, (or maybe I've actually given too few details to solve the problem).

It would be extremely helpful to get my laptop wifi working at home so I can bring some work home a lot easier, especially through the next 2 weeks of holiday season.

Uncheck "The key is provided for me automatically" and enter and confirm your Network key.

I recenty switched from AT&T Uverse to Time Warner because AT&T Uverse could not support Cisco VPN Client.

Wireless Network Connection shows that the laptop is picking up my home wifi network, and shows that it is connected, but continues to say "Validating Identity" and is not allowing me to access wireless services.

- Wireless Network Connection Properties says Connect using: Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection - From there, I select the Wireless Networks tab, and select the name of my home network under the Preferred Networks section, then select Properties - 3 tabs then say Association, Authentication, Connection - Association tab: Network name (SSID) - then, name of my home wifi network Wireless network key Network Authentication: (Open, Shared, WPA, or WPA-PSK) -- I select WPA-PSK Data encryption: (TKIP or AES) -- I select AES Network key --- I enter the password we use on the Netgear wifi server When I hit the "Connect" button to connect to the network, it will say, "Please wait while Windows connects to the network" then after several seconds, it will say that it has connected, but then will sit there with a yellow star above the 5 green bars showing wifi signal strength, and just to the left of the star it says "Validating identity" and will stay that way indefinitely. The little status icon that's supposed to indicate your wireless network status in the bottom right of the computer screen (in the taskbar) shows a computer with a yellow dot moving back and forth beneath it.

This seemed to work for me after I disconnected from my router and reconnected again.
