Throw your laptop out the nearest window, and then spray it with gasoline and throw a match out the same window!
Hope this helps!
P.S.- This solved my problem for me.

It may be the authentication settings for the wireless connection, I am not sure what OS you are running but try turning off authentication in the connection settings.

If that doesn't work, try the network setup wizard if you have windows. You might also delete any saved 'profiles' for the wireless connection under the "Connect to the networks automatically' part.

If that still doesn't work, you could try uninstalling the wireless adapter from device manager and let windows reinstall it.

Wireless security


I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

Tip

How do I set up the wireless network key on my linksys router?


Hi.

This tip applies to any Linksys wireless router.

First you need to access the router control panel , and check wireless settings.

Therouter control panel is accessed connecting a computer to the router.This is done using an Ethernet cable, and entering router IP address in Internet Explorer address bar.

Here the cable:

Here the procedure.

Connect router to computer using a network cable (LAN cable with RJ45 connector).

On computer open Internet explorer and type router IP in the address bar (where you use to typewww.this.that ).The IP address is indicated on router user manual. Ifit has not been changed, 192.168.1.1 is the default for LinkSys brand home broadband routers. Press enter after typing the IP.

Enter router user name and passord. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer LinkSys routers, both the default usernameand the password are "admin". If that does not work, then defaultsettings had been changed. In that case you will need to reset therouter. See: Reset a LinkSys Router Password.

After entering right ID and password you will open the router control pane as HTML page in Internet Explorer.

In the router control panel choose the wireless setting tab to see or modify the password:

If you do not need to change wireless settings, then write down the encryption key, and set the same key on the laptop. Once the right key is set on the laptop, the connection will start automatically.

If more computersare connecting to this network, then do not reset or change thewireless settings. Simply write down the key on paper and setup thelaptop.

Remember that WAP encryption keys are case sensitive, Wep encryption keys are not.

The simplest encryption to choose is WEP.
WEP means wireless encryption key.

Open the router panel, go to wireless, and find key settings or set your own key.

If you have to set the key:

If you choose WEP 64, then the key that you need to set will be 10 characters key made by numbers and letters from A to F.

Close Internet Explorer to get out of the Linksys control panel.

Regards.

I need the Network security key to add my lapptop to the router.


http://www.pcwintech.com/screenshots-linksys-wrt54g-linksys-firmware


First, let's log on to the router.
  1. Open your internet browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. This is the default IP address of the browser.
  2. In the login box that appears type 'admin' (without quotes) in both fields. 'admin' is the default username and password.
Write down the SSID
  1. In the Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings menu you will see the Service Set Identifier or SSID. The SSID differentiates one wireless network from another. It is the 'network name'. Write it down, or copy paste it to a text file. You will need it later. You can first set your own SSID if you like.
In the Linksys WRT54G router you will find the wireless security options under Wireless > Wireless Security. This page allows you to set wireless encryption options.

here you will find you wireless key. this can only be done by a machine connected directly by network wire. make sure you are connected first. wireless is unable to connect unless it is directly connected.

Can not connect ipad to router


If your Linksys wireless router is already setup with a wireless network, do the following to connect the ipad to the network:

Tap the Settings icon on the home screen of the iPad. Go to General, then Wifi. Once in the wifi section, you should see available wireless networks. Choose the network that is setup on the Linksys and connect to it. Enter the password if you have one set on the wireless network and tap join.

If your linksys is not setup with a wireless network, consult the manual for it to configure it properly.

I have a cisco by linksys and i have validating indentity went a enable on seting and my labtop came up but i still have validating identity when i start up lab top status connection will this go away if...


you will have an option called wifi protected setup(wps)...You need to disable this particular feature...
This feature when enabled gives the error message like "validating identity"...

or by the other way instead of disabling the wps, you can add the network manually by entering the network information like ssid, password and security type...
This will also help....

This is a 100% proven solution for validating identity....

What do I need to do to validate? I don't even get a prompt for a password, it just goes straight to connecting then hangs on "Validating Identity" Linksys wireless router won't connect


If you installed a new Linksys router then open a broswer window and type the following into the url address:

http://192.168.1.1

The default password is "admin". Leave the user name blank. This will open up your router's configuration page. You can then modify your settings.

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.
