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.

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.

My laptop keeps saying validating identity and it wont go on line troubleshooting says things seemed to be ok but its trying to say a cable is unplugged or my local area connection is firewalled and i


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.

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.

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.

D-Link Wireless: validating identity


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" just below.

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.

You're good to go.... :)
