The computer that will not connect does not have security settings that match the router settings. You need to consult your router manual, determine what those settings are on the rounter, then go into your control panel and under "wireless" set them to match.

SOURCE: validating identity

To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, 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 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.

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....
Because I directly work for Belkin....

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.

Lan troubleshoot


If the LAN status says limited or no connectivity it only means one thing the PC is not getting a valid IP from the router , first thing to do here is that was working fine before is to restart the computer and if after that still not working restart your router and your modem to refresh everything...

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.


Rate it, if it helps.

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.... :)
