Validating identity wireless xp
I have not been able to connect to my wireless router (Belkin N ) - it detects my wireless network, but when I click connect it says detecting network type, then says it is "validating identity" and doesn't connect (never gets to the point where it asks for my password).
Never seen this validating identity when connecting any of our windows laptops tothe network sonot sure what it means/why it does it through Bootcamp. Cheers, David UPDATE: I've searched on some Windows forums and this error is because Windows is setting the wireless connection to authenticate, when the router is not expecting it to.
Several reboots later and it goes back to asking for password and validating identity error disappears.
Hope this is useful for anyone else who has this problem.
