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.
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
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.

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.
