Internet connection status validating identity
Abstract This article describes the tools used to troubleshoot a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003-based wireless client, a wireless access point (AP), and the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) when using Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X authentication for IEEE 802.11-based wireless connections.This article also describes the most common problems with IAS authentication and authorization, certificate properties, and the process of certificate validation for both wireless client and IAS server certificates.
Is there any solution available short or replacing the NIC or network card with an updated one? If you are trying to connect to the 5GHz wifi, there will be a 5g after the last 3 of the routers MAC address.Note: If your router has multiple ethernet ports, DO NOT use the WAN port to connect a computer.WAN ports are usually colored blue and/or labeled with an icon that looks like a little monitor; they are intended to be used to connect devices that provide internet, such as Cable, DSL, or Satellite modems.If you see a message about Validating Identity upon connecting to the Cradlepoint router, it means WEP security mode is enabled.My router settings: ipconfig/all results from the XP box: Again, this card a week ago.
I can't figure out why I can't get it up and running now.
(It is possible I missed an update, but don't think I did). They are the ones that told me the NIC was too old to support WPA2. You can go here to download the correct driver once you know which one. I have downloaded all the network drivers as well as the software drivers and some other recommended updates.
I guess I'm just hoping there is an update or something that can allow it without having to replace it. I have Windows XP with SP3 (which is supposed to allow WPA2) with a Dell 1397 Wireless Card.
It can find the network fine, but when I try to connect, I don't get the password prompt -- it moves straight to "validating identity," scans, and then says "Windows was not able to find a certificate to log you on to the wireless network Foo." The maddening thing is that the card was working fine a week ago, in the same box, using the same OS.
I pulled everything out, swapped out the motherboard, and reinstalled Windows on a freshly wiped hard drive, and now I can't get it up and running again. I've taken several runs at it, including attempting to manually change the settings for the network to include WPA-PSK and AES and the password, and I'm a bit worried that I've totally boned everything.
I'm currently doing a spare-parts build to put a media computer in the living room, and having a devil of a time getting my Rosewill RNX-6300 wireless card to connect to my network.
