Wireless network validating identity problem xp

Rated 4.83/5 based on 707 customer reviews

If the box was checked, then that was why you were getting the “unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network” message because Windows is looking for one, but your wireless router is not setup for certificate security. " From: Upgrade to SP3 and you should be able to connect to your network.

Hi, I am running Windows XP SP2 via Bootcamp 3.0 on Snow Leopard 10.6.2.

Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom. For Windows XP you do not need to boot from a USB drive. I have worked long hours on problems like this which only resulted in a System Reload to solve it. 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.error "windows was unable to find certificate to log on to the network" & showing validating identity.i tried unchecking the enable authentication box under advanced settings but still no result.
