My wireless net work keeps breaking down, I have to restart...
One computer says it cannot validate identity. If I go the route of starting a wireless connection, flash drive,etc., the connection start, but will disconnect unexpectedly. The laptop on the network cannot connect at all. These problems started when ATT changed the Modem.

In order to remove the Validating identity to your computer here are the steps that you may need to follow: - Logon to the configuration page of the router by opening a browser and type in 192.168.0.1 and press Enter. - Go to Advanced tab and select Wi-Fi Protected Setup at your left side - Uncheck the Enable box and click on Save Settings located at the top.
Re: My wireless net work keeps breaking down, I have to...
If you don't have a contract with ATT, you may want to change. THey have what's called a "sticky static IP" which essentially flickers the connection. This wouldn't typically have any problem with the connection between devices, but some lower end routers and networks have this problem. If you don't want to change carriers, try upgrading to another modem. You don't have to have the one they give you. In fact, the netgear and similar ones work well...much better than the 2wires. Let me know if this helps.

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.
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.
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.
Try deleting the wireless network connection through control panel, network connections, right click your wireless adapter then select properties. Click on wireless networks on the tabs at the top. Remove your wireless from the list then reboot machine. When Windows has restarted search for wireless networks and find your wireless network. Click on connect and then input your wireless key. Windows may have thrown a wobbly and lost your wireless key. Common problem.
Try to restart the the Wireless Router if that doesn't work then go to: Start-> Run-> CMD [Enter] type in: netsh winsock reset [reset] restart the pc... when it boots back up go back to CMD prompt and type in: net start [enter] this will start the net services you may need to go type in Services.msc in cmd prompt and go all the way to bottom and enable Wireless Zero Configuration... If that doesnt work you may need to reinstall Drivers on room mates PC.
I believe this has to do with your automatic router/setup for wireless
networks....but this is what I did to clear the same problem:
1) Right click on the tray icon that is searching for validation and select status.
2) A "Wireless Network Connection Status" box will open, click "Properties".
3) Your "Wireless Connection Properties" box will open showing the
Wireless Networks available. Find the wireless network you are
connected to and highlight it by clicking once, then click "Properties"
4) Another box will then open with the properties for your network. Click on the "Authentication" tab.
5) Un-check the "Enable IEEE 802.1x Authentication...." checkbox.
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
