To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go
to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen
wireless network you are trying to connect to. Then go to
"authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to
the availiable network" and that should solve your problem
Thank you!!!! Worked on Acer Laptop like a charm. Mac
This is a wonderful solution and I working at tp-link have found this has helped my customers over the phone countless times. Granted there are those "unique" situations. However, this is a great solution to help resolve the issue.
I spent ages trying to use tp- as an ap client. tried every setting I could think of. Then........ Changed wireless security setting on home hub 3 to use JUST WPA2 not WPA/WPA2 and all worked. Give it a go. :-)
The Authenticating status means that you entered an icorrect network key. The 54Mbps is the wireless speed that your card is getting from the wireless router. That means that your router can only broadcast a maximum speed of 54Mbps. This is usual for Wireless-G routers. Although your card is capable of receiving 108 Mbps, the router doesn't have that speed. The 108 Mbps can be attained if you have a Wireless-N router. To resolve the Authenticating error, try to reconnect to your wireless network using the TP-Link utility. Make sure to enter the corrent wireless network key also called as passphrase. If you are using WEP as security mode, follow the steps below
For Win XP
1. Go to Control Panel, Network Connections
2. Right click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties
3. Click on the Wireless Network Tab and at the bottom you'll see Preferred Networks
4. Highlight the name of your network and click on Properties. Click on Authentication tab then uncheck the option that says "Enable IEEE" something like that. Click OK all the way out
5: Check if that fixes it. You may also try to reboot the computer after that.
One more thing is you can try to change the Channel of your router. You can do that by connecting your laptop hardwired to your router then access router web interface
Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer . You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online. Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer. Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens. Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

I know how you feel. I was suckered into buying a Linksys compact wireless router and it's performance was the pits. I solved the problem by buying a new wireless router from TP-Link and it runs like a real gem. All 3 of my laptops surf on the internet wirelessly simultaneously together with my wired desktop with nary a trace of speed degradation considering that my line is only a 128 Mbps DSL line!. You've got to try TP-Link. It is so low-cost yet high-performance you'll be saying "best buy" over and over and over.
