Network status validating identity
Select your encryption type from the "Network Authentication" and "Data Encryption" drop downs.
Uncheck "The key is provided for me automatically" and enter and confirm your Network key.
In the next window click on the "Authentication" tab, Make sure "Enable IEEE 802.1x...." checkbox is UN-Checked, the rest of this window should be greyed out.
If your network is Encrypted go on to step 6 otherwise Click ok and try to connect to your network again.
I have never encountered this with other wireless connections for which I have the password.
Can anyone out there shed some light on this problem?
Hello, I'm trying to connect wirelessly from a Lenovo SL410 laptop to my fully functional home network.
I have unchecked the authentication box in network properties and entered the existing network key. steve UPDATE: My home net was set to WPA2 (from my Win7 desktop), which XP doesn't appear to offer. The IE error apparently is due to an old version, I switched to Firefox and there are no further problems.
For detailed information about how to deploy a wireless LAN using IEEE 802.1X authentication, see Deployment of Protected 802.11 Networks Using Microsoft Windows.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.This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.For background information, see Wireless LAN Technologies and Microsoft Windows.
