Win xp wireless validating identity
How can I remove all the info and then have the pc search for a wireless network again...cause when it find the network a window should pop up asking for the key. You need to convert your WRT54GS to a WAP (wireless access point). Connect one computer, by wire, to any numbered port (not the Internet port) on the WRT54GS. Using an ethernet cable, connect any numbered port on the BEFSR81 to any numbered port on the WRT54GS. The BEF will control your router settings (firewall, DHCP server, port forwarding, etc.). If you are using any fixed LAN IP addresses, you must take note of the following: D-Link and Linksys use fixed LAN IP addresses diferently.In the WRT54GS do the following: Set the "Local IP Address" to a fixed LAN IP address, such as 192.168.1.2 (assuming you are not using this address elsewhere in your network, and assuming the BEF router address is still 192.168.1.1) Turn off the DHCP server. With Linksys, your fixed LAN IP addresses must be "outside" the DHCP server range.
So what I need is to find out how do I get that window asking for the security key on my lap top.It would be extremely helpful to get my laptop wifi working at home so I can bring some work home a lot easier, especially through the next 2 weeks of holiday season.If anyone can help me ASAP, I'd be extremely grateful.Command prompt Info: Wired IP Address: 192.168.0.4 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway 192.168.0.1 Ethernet plug disconnected: Wireless Adapter Info: IP Address 169.254.187.115 Subnet Mask 255.255.0 The wireless network Connection 6 States: This Network requires a Network Key. but as I said it is currently locked in a [Validating identity] mode. Question: can any other device connect or is the same issue?pupuli Wired IP looks good, Wireless IP says "NO IP" which you already knew. Also see if there is any wireless profiles configured in the OS and delete them! I hooked up my other pc to wireless and it connected also the status indicator said that it was connected also.
