You didn't provide your router make, model, so this is a general procedure. Wired or Wireless connection? You didn't say? Shut down the computer, unplug , remove battery. Unplug the wired/wireless device,. Unplug the ISP modem, remove battery, if applicable. Verify ALL cables and connections. Replace battery in the ISP modem, plug in, wait for selftest. Plug in the wired/wireless device, wait for selftest, If wireless, try a Ethernet cable to verify your router is connecting to the ISP modem. I would suspect a Laptop issue.

SOURCE: Wireless internet

You could try to manually set your IP address in the TCP/IP, the gateway and your ISP DNS

SOURCE: unable to get IP address on SMC2804WBRP-G

You need to setup security on the laptop/access point. Apparently it has been setup in the router.

My computer wont connect to my wireless conection. keeps saying validating address


Sounds like you don't have the password in correctly. It's case sensitive and has to be exact otherwise it will keep on polling trying to validate.

Go back into the network settings and put the password in again.

I keep having this problem with my wireless saying validating Identity. And I can not connect to the inernet


Hi

for resolving your problem Click the network properties and select wireless properties,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

My dell Laditude D610 keeps saying validating identity when i try to connect to my new network.


I had an idea for your "validating identity problem."

Can you get to a dialog box that shows the "Properties" for your wireless networks. What we are looking for is specific for the connection to your wireless network.

We want to get to a page that asks if you want to "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network." If you disable this (no check mark), does the "validating identity" problem go away?

Let me know if you need more specific help.

VALIDATING IDENTITY


I've also had this problem when trying to connect my Medion Laptop through a Netgear Range Extender. It would find the router wirelessly but not through the Netgear. I had tried every solution on the web for days without success. Thanks to this page and a contributor who suggested updating the driver (which I had thought of previously) I did that and it all works fine. My laptop is 7 years old and wouldn't recogise WPA-PSK which was the setting on a newly installed router.

Update your Driver. :)

Dell Inspiron 8600 validating problems


This is a problem associated with a wireless connection. What it is asking for is the identity of your wireless lan. That is, the name the router is broadcasting. This is called the network ID.and is what you must supply when asked. If you untick the IEEE.802.1 you disable the connection. You will also need to have the nework securety code (WEP) to logon.

Laptop says validating identity


Right click on wireless network connection and go to properties. From the Wireless Networks tab, choose your wireless network and then click Properties.

Click the Authentication tab. On the Authentication tab, Uncheck"Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication" for this network check box. and click oK.

Now reconnect to the wireless network and you will be able to connect to it.

IF you still face issue then please enable WPA encryption on the wireless router and that should work fine with both the laptops.

Validating identity


it is just that the network key which is stored in the computer is not working so the 1st thing u need to do is verify the network key for that go to 192.168.0.1 from internet explorer enter the user id & password of ur dlink ( default id: admin password : admin) the go to wireless check the WEP or security key which is present their. reenter that key the computer & try to connect.

If it didn't work then go to control panel >> system >> hardware>> device manager

look for the network adepter & unintall the wireless network card
restart the computer
once restart it will automatically reintall the wireless card driver
then go to control panel>>Network Connection
right click on wireless network connection
select view wireless network connect
select ur network name & connect it will ask for the key provide the key & once u do that it will get connected & work fine

if in case u have the same problem replay back & i help u out with it & also provide all the details like which windows & network card etc
